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
this movie had a kind of 'movie of the week' feel to.i don't mean that in a bad way.it is a very touching and heartbreaking movie,so you might want to have some Kleenex handy.it's the story of some kids from Texas who are caught in a flash flood on their way home from bible camp.the story is more personal,since it is on a smaller scale.i really felt for those kids as they tried to survive.i also really felt for the survivors who had lost loved ones and the parents of the ones who perished.this movie is not so much about a disaster,as it is about the human beings who survive and how they and their families cope with the tragedy and the realization of loss.i thought this movie explored that aspect very well and was well acted.it is a hard movie to watch,even more so,because it is inspired by a real life tragedy.it's hard to say i enjoyed this movie,because of the subject matter.so,i have to base my rating on the acting,which is the focal point of the movie,and the strongest.on that basis,i give 'Flood.Who will save our children'6.5/10
