Storyline

After heavy rain, the Mississippi is breaking it's banks flooding small towns. Richard Thomas and Kate Vernon realise their town is next on the hit list. Lots and lots of sand bags might not do the trick but a huge explosion might. In the meantime the plot is filled up with a predictable story about a family dreading their mistake of staying behind when they become entrapped in their own home.

2 August 1998 | by See all my reviews

During the 1993 floods along the Mississippi, a woman engineer returns to her home town and inspires its inhabitants to fight to save it from being engulfed by the river. This involves her in working closely with a former boyfriend. A conventional but well-produced drama, with nice performances from Thomas and Vernon.
