The film, which is based on a true story, is brought to you by the Grundfos Foundation in association with Academy Award-winning director Orlando von Einsiedel. It’s the story of an inspirational heroine who sacrificed everything for our water, but it also focuses on water challenges in Pakistan and around the globe. As a leading water solutions provider, we see it as our obligation to contribute to overcoming these challenges.

Overcoming water challenges together
Our modern way of living places a higher demand on the global water supply. But if we all take action for our water, we can overcome water challenges together. Both globally and locally.
