Chaz and Charo are two teenagers out for an adventure in a canoe on the Amazon River in South America. They are caught in a sudden storm, and the river begins to rage. They hold on tight and try to keep the canoe from tipping over. The canoe is traveling at a high rate of speed as they are swept down the river for many hours. The next day, the canoe hits a tree and breaks the canoe in half.
