The importance of the Mekong to the inhabitants of the river basin is demonstrated as fishermen, boat captains and other ordinary people tell of their livelihoods, their beliefs and their love for the river. The film stresses the need for cooperation to ensure the health of the river and the economic well- being of people in the river basin. Directed by Peter Degen.
