Storyline

How far would you go to keep your job? That's the question the ad for this movies states. Based on a true story, Dan Cutler is the head of a New York advertising agency. In a move to build character, he books a trip for a whitewater rafting trip on Canada's White Mile. After the raft turns over, all of the men scatter all over the rapids. Some of them are found dead, which leads to a lawsuit by one of the wives of the deceased. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>
