"...The suspense rises along with the water..."
Rising flood waters imperil the residents of a Midwestern town, but to a gang of thieves, the disaster is an opportunity--to waltz off with the contents of a bank vault abandoned by the evacuated townspeople. Something they didn't count on is armed truck driver Christian Slater, called upon to carry the money out of the vault and to higher ground. Thus begins a battle of wills set against the raging flood tides, complicated further by a corrupt sheriff's designs on the loot. Nifty flood effects and high-octane action sequences keep things moving at a rapid pace.
