舉世聞名的水都威尼斯,歷史悠久,風景優美,大小水路交織,水上的貢多拉船漂來盪去,撐著船櫓的船夫唱起當地的義大利民謠……,浪漫迷人的風光與名氣讓威尼斯每年吸引了不同年齡層、兩千多萬名的觀光客湧入這座城市。觀光業帶動地方發展,為了湧入更多的觀光客,港口的擴建工程正加緊趕工中。雖然,觀光客的到訪帶來豐沛的收入,同時也會對古老的建築與當地居民的生活帶來負擔與破壞。經濟上的投資讓房價居高不下,買不起房子的年輕人只好放棄居住在威尼斯,導致年輕人的人口大量外移。據專家預計,再繼續這樣下去,威尼斯的城市生命將會在2030年告終,最後,它將不再有任何居民居住在那,而成為一座水上觀光樂園……。

這部紀錄片抱著深切關懷的態度,介紹千年水都的美麗、體會最後威尼斯人的生活,讓這部影片既動人又諷刺。
Venice is pure romance; that which all Europeans yearn for, the dream of all Americans, the wish of all Japanese. But the world's most beautiful city turns into a ghost town at nightfall. Entire quarters, long since abandoned by their inhabitants, stand empty, their structures merely providing a myth to serve business interests.
Twenty million foreigners visited the city last year. That's an average of 60,000 day. And this year it will be more still. By comparison, there are only 58,000 inhabitants, the same amount as they were after the Great Plague of 1438. And next year it will be fewer still. For the city is becoming uninhabitable. Venice’s own urban life has almost collapsed; it scarcely still exists.
