Most of you think of sand as a complimentary ingredient of any beach vacation.  Yet every house, skyscraper, bridge, airport, and sidewalk in our modern society depends upon sand.  It is in our toothpaste, optical fiber, cell phones, computer chips, powered foods, and our wine (the glass and the alcohol).  
What are the consequences of intensive beach sand mining?  Is sand an infinite resource?
Find out what the Sand Wars investigative documentary finds by traveling around the globe to unveil a different type of "gold" rush.
