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

Gut wrenching but well worth watching
21 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am one of the characters portrayed in the movie. My name is Linda Smith, the mother of Michael, Stacey and Tonya. The movie was well done, with some exceptions. Jerry Smith never was angry at his son, and he never told him to take care of his sisters. The young man who saved Jeff Bowman's life should have been given much more credibility. I knew him and he was a wonderful young man. He lost his life and his body was never found. He did receive the Young American's Medal For Bravery Award, given by Presidents Bush and Reagan. Also, the part about Tonya and her friend in the river really happened. It is good that the movie is shown twice a year because these ten young people deserve to be remembered. It can also serve as a reminder that you can't be two careful when young people are in your care. I appreciate NBC making the movie and especially thank David Kinghorn for his original screen writing.
