While most people who visit the Dead River hear the of rushing water, 17-year-old Kiandra Levesque hears the voices of people the river has claimed. She's been kept away from water ever since her mother committed suicide by walking into the Delaware River 10 years earlier.
Angry at this abandonment, she wants to prove to herself that she has left her mother behind, so she sneaks away with her boyfriend for a camping and rafting trip in rural Maine.
When she encounters the spirit of a boy killed in the 1930s, Kia learns that she has magical powers and that she might be able to see her mother again--but that she must cross the river from life to death to do so.
