A beginners' wilderness journey turns into a death-defying experience in the suspenseful action-adventure, WHITE WATER SUMMER, starring Kevin Bacon (Hollow Man, A Few Good Men) and Sean Astin (Rudy, The Lord of the Rings). When Vic (Bacon) leads four boys on a challenging outing in the Sierras, he is determined to teach his charges courage, camaraderie and survival. But his relentless, demanding routine pushes them to their physical and emotional limits, and the four boys discover they are as unprepared for the rigors of roughing it as they are for Vic's unpredictable, volatile nature. Most affected is the soft-spoken, intellectual Alan (Astin), who soon finds himself fighting for his life as he learns that it's one thing to survive the wild, but quite another to survive one's guide. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the rugged outdoors, the conflict of man against nature becomesa conflict of man against man in this unforgettable rite of passage film featuring outstanding cinematography from John Alcott (The Shining, 2001: A Space Odyssey) and a driving musical score featuring Bruce Hornsby and the Range, Journey, and The Cult.
