Tschadsee - Mutter des Wassers. Vier Unternehmer, zwei Dörfer und ein See in Afrika

When the level of Lake Chad sank during the 1970s, a wide strip of fertile land was exposed on the Nigerian shore. A considerable number of villages sprang up on the banks of the former lake and peoples of various origins settled there. In the dry Sahel zone the waters of Lake Chad offer fishermen, farmers and tradesmen the prospect of a good income the whole year round. While some still only dream of making easy money, others have laid the foundations of a secure livelihood. The film shows daily life in two villages on the shores of Lake Chad, focussing on four entrepreneurs - two women and two men - each one successfully conducting business in his or her own way.
