Based on the novel of the same name, this coming-of-age story is about Gus Orviston who leaves his eccentric parents in the city for what he thinks is flyfishing bliss along the banks of a wild river. This quickly turns into a journey of self-discovery and the meaning of life. Most of all, it is the love story of a man who lives for the wilderness and the beautiful woman who comes to share it with him.
