Hell in High Water relives the account of the Great Flood of 1927. Set in Greenville Mississippi, this story follows the social, economic, and political realities of an entire city of people who are subject to the powerful will of the Mississippi River. Fathers and sons are pitted against each other in this stunning true story of courage and cowardice; power and poverty; life and survival. With music that seeps into your bones and flow through your spirit, Hell in High Water weaves a visual and auditory masterpiece that must be seen to be believed.
