-Once upon a time, in almost every city, many rivers flowed. Why did they disappear? How? And could we see them again? This documentary tries to find answers by meeting visionary urban thinkers, activists and artists from around the world.

-Caroline Bacle’s documentary explores how numerous rivers across America were incorporated into various sewer systems as cities began to flourish and the country became more urban and industrialized.

-The filmmakers take us on an adventure down below and across the globe, retracing the history of these lost urban rivers by plunging into archival maps and going underground with clandestine urban explorers.
