A flash flood inundates a small New Mexican community, washing away homes, dreams and lives -- bringing out the best and worst in people as they struggle to find safety in the unforgiving deluge. More
New Mexico had never seen rain like this. The school is hit first, the water flooding the classrooms, the teachers trying desperately to save the children, then trying to find some way to save themselves. The city's poor section with its ramshackle homes is almost instantly washed away, women and children caught up in the raging current. On the other side of town a blind lady is trapped in her home, her only hope a stripper stranded blocks away. The flood becomes a tidal wave, sweeping cars and trees and buildings in its wake. Those who are left realize it's too deep to wade, to swift to swim. A few band together in a desperate attempt to reach higher ground. But there's one who doesn't care about anyone but himself, and God help the person who gets in his way.
