The temperature is blistering, and water levels are rising in the rapids of the Colorado River
JT Maroney, veteran river guide, is ready to take his 125th trip deep into the heart of the Grand Canyon, one of the most beautiful natural chasms in the world. JT thinks he’s seen it all before, but this trip will change him forever. For the next two weeks his twelve passengers, mostly strangers to one another – and certainly to him, will paddle, swim and ride the rapids, sleep under the stars and breathe in the drama of the landscape. They’ll also learn all about each other; more, perhaps, than they wanted to know. As the trip gets underway, allegiances form, often between unlikely members of the group: connections that constantly change and evolve in the most unpredictable ways.
