When their parents are killed in a car accident, Scott and Gregg are sent to live with an uncle they never even knew they had. Hurt, angry, and confused by the sudden death of their parents, they leave a comfortable life in the California suburbs for the remote Colorado Rockies, where their uncle Rocky runs a white water rafting company. The story is told from the point of view of Scott, a thoughtful 15 year-old determined to give his uncle and his new life a fair chance. Gregg, his 17 year-old brother, refuses to reach out to either Scott or his uncle for help in company to terms with the grief he's buried deep within himself. He quickly befriends Roger, a reckless river guide for Rocky's company, who helps steer Gregg further away from his brother and uncle. Only a crisis on the river can bring Gregg to his senses and save him from losing tthe only family he has left.
