The governor of a sleepy Caribbean island, finds his peaceful existence shattered when an oil company accidentally discovers pure sparkling water.
The discovery of mineral water on the small Caribbean island of Cascara leads to utter confusion in this comedy. Although part of the British empire, the colony has been judged a useless piece of land. But that perception changes once the water is found. Soon representatives of various governments have converged on the island to get in on the perceived windfall. And if that isn't bad enough, the laid-back, marijuana smoking governor of Cascara must also contend with his obnoxious wife, a group of folk-singing revolutionaries, and a pretty environmentalist.
