This film is a short documentary about water, it's relationship to "Fracking" and the whistle blowers efforts to raise awareness.

Producers Note

The story continues to unravel and in frightening ways, but i really don't want to make another horror movie documentary, we just want to tell a good story, this just happens to be a scary one.  yesterday, march 20th 2012 an Air Quality study was released...

http://www.postindependent.com/article/20120320/VALLEYNEWS/120319877/1109&parentprofile=1074

"The study, known as a Human Health Risk Assessment, found that potentially toxic airborne chemicals have been detected while gas wells are being hydraulically fractured, or “fracked.”"

"The report concludes that health risks are greater for people living closest to wells and urges a reduction in those air emissions."

THEN...this was a big red flag for me,  A gag order was placed on doctors in Pennsylvania ...WHAT?!?!

http://truth-out.org/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=7323:fracking-pennsylvania-gags-physicians

"A new Pennsylvania law endangers public health by forbidding health care professionals from sharing information they learn about certain chemicals and procedures used in high volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing. The procedure is commonly known as fracking."

seriously?why would the gov want to keep doctors quite? this is effed up.
