** spoiler alert ** After surviving the Canadian wilderness, Brian returns home. But his life will never be the same. He becomes famous, swamped with the press every where he goes. Eventually, it blows over, but not for long. One day, after school, there is a knock on the door. It turns out that there are these people who want him to give a demonstration of how he survived so they can teach other people. Once they find a suitable lake to live around for about a month, the plane leaves. There only form of communication is a radio tranmitter. When a sudden storm hits, destroying the transmitter and putting this strange survival teacher in a coma, Brian doesn't know what to do. The only way to get somewhere is the river, running out of the lake. Brian decides that he must build a raft, sail down the river until he finds an outpost that can help this man. But will either of them survive the river?
