Storyline

In rural Comfort, Texas, the strict protestant Horizon Bible church community holds its annual, pretty strictly supervised summer camp, with mandatory prayer sessions, for fraternizing teens from all over the States. The day before their departure, storm weather is announced, the busses even ride early to keep ahead, but the wind makes a river rise too fast: the busses are caught, everybody must run on foot. As TV reporters see from their helicopter, the rising water is too fast for one bus after choosing the wrong way, children and staff must climb in trees but can't cling on very long. Some kids break down in understandable panic, others prove true and unselfish courage, including Brad, the natural leader, every girl's dream and the most boisterous of the pack, occasionally braving the rather totalitarian system. Worried parents fly in to the rescue center in a public school, where survivors and corpses are brought in, including that of Tonya Smith; her overprotective father ... Written by KGF Vissers

Great, Tearjerking time-waster
27 November 2004 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This movie airs once or twice a year and every year I watch it and get caught up in it all over again. Based on a true life event, you can't help but get engrossed as you watch the kids struggling through the horrible flood that would take 10 lives. The film is not without its faults, primarily inaccuracies and embellishments that the film makers thought would make the story more "entertaining". First off, the bus never drove into a river as depicted and the driver got the kids off the bus much faster than portrayed. Secondly, the true "Hero" of the disaster in real life, a young man who saved several friends before last being seen and incidentally was never found, is portrayed as a bit of a "jerk". Unfortunately he never gets the acknowledgement that he truly deserves by the film makers (although in real life President Bush did present a posthumus award in his name). I think that the film would have been just as gripping if the story had been told as it really happened, in fact, it would probably have been even more gut-wrenching if we were allowed to really like and mourn the character. That being said, the movie is well written, well acted and really does pay tribute those 10 who lost their lives in the disaster and to the brave strangers who risked their lives to try to save them. I hope that this movie continues to air, year after year, so that these Children will not be forgotten. True lovers of this movie can now purchase it on DVD.
