Documentary that focuses on the geology, archeology and history of the Dead Sea region, a place of lost cities and fabled civilizations, destructive forces and human conflict. For thousands of years, its shores were believed to be cursed, its gaping cliffs the gateway to hell. Whether environmental, geological, historical or political, the history of the Dead Sea continues to be marked by cataclysmic events. Today, the dwindling resources of this unique sea could prove yet another political flashpoint. Analysts predict that the next war in the Middle East will be fought not over oil but water.
