Twenty Seven

A great storm has caused the levees to burst on the mighty Mississippi resulting in a flood of biblical proportions. A prisoner from a penal colony is entrusted to pilot a small raft into the heart of the mayhem to save who he can. When he pulls a young pregnant woman from the limb of a tree, the unlikely pair embarks on a seven week journey in which they face the perils of the Big Muddy and others who would do them harm.
