Synopsis

Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep turns her hand to action films in this white-water knuckle-biter. Having decided to heal some family rifts, expert rafter Gail (Streep) takes her husband and their young son for a day out on the river. But the pleasant family adventure takes a turn for the worse when they encounter a couple of armed bank robbers (Kevin Bacon and John C. Reilly) who hijack the raft and take them into seemingly impassable rapids. It's now up to Gail to save the day and return them to safer waters.
