Welcome: Take Me to the River
Description: Teenage cousins Dylan and Rio, with no adult supervision, attempt to paddle the 116 mile Big Bend portion of the Rio Grande in ten days, hoping to beat the hurricane headed their way. Black Hawk helicopters appear at the beginning of their adventure, the soldiers warn them about pending storm, or is their something worse they are searching for? Why would the boys risk completing their journey by venturing, illegally, across the border to a small Mexican town? What could come of them running into a man with a seven year old boy in such an isolated area?
