This documentary, which took over seven years to film, records the efforts of filmmaker Jack Currey and his companions to ride their pontoon rafts down the Grijalva River in Mexico. Footage showing their efforts in Mexico is contrasted with rafting expeditions in the Grand Canyon in the U.S. The Grijalva River was uncharted at the time, and much of its course is far off the tourist track; therefore the film's footage of village and native life could well-interest other intrepid travelers.
