While investigating a murder, Leslie York, the resident
deputy of the old mining town of Copper Creek, finds
herself stranded on the wrong side of the creek when it
turns into a raging torrent. Others driven from their
homes by the rising water gather together, but one of them
turns up dead. When Leslie begins to suspect the victim's
death was murder, she finds herself in peril, struggling
for life in the angry floodwaters.
