A riverboat pilot whose outwardly charmed life masks a tortured past finds that not even the most luxurious of material possessions can help him elude his demons in writer/director Richard Elias' rapid-water tale of redemption. From the time he was a young child, all Jack (Nathan Grubbs) ever wanted in life was to become a river pilot. Though as an adult Jack does manage to achieve his youthful dream, all the money, creature comforts, and love in New Orleans isn't enough to make him shake the addiction that threatens to send him spiraling into treacherous waters of the New Orleans underworld. As his loving wife Gabrielle (Gabrielle Sfardini) attempts to help Jack conquer his dark past, influential shipping magnate Lars (Ed Zajac) and New Orleans drug kingpin Dickie (Charles Allen) do their best to hasten the troubled pilot's fall by encouraging Jack to go back to his old ways.
