Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Flood was designed for British Saturday afternoon kiddie matinees, though it packs enough entertainment values to keep adults happy as well. Six farm children are perilously isolated when a flood hits their community. The kids brave the onrushing waters until the effort becomes too much to bear. At the last moment, a rescue team is dispatched to save the resourceful sextet. At 58 minutes, The Flood is just long enough to sustain interest with younger viewers, but not so long as to induce restlessness or boredom.
