Review

Our Score
Based on actual events when a flash flood trapped a coach full of children returning from summer camp, this tear-jerking TV movie focuses on the effect the disaster has on one family. Scott Michael Campbell plays the youngster who is lucky enough to survive, but whose younger sisters are listed as missing. As grief envelops his family, he finds himself in conflict with his father who holds him responsible. Campbell gives a stand-out performance and there's reliable support from former Hill Street Blues regular Joe Spano, but the high syrup factor ultimately spoils the movie.

Summary
