WORLD PREMIERE
When pro kayaker Rafa Ortiz makes the decision to paddle over Niagara Falls, he sets in motion an incredible series of events that eventually takes on a life of its own. To prepare for this mission, Rafa enlists the help of world-renowned paddler Rush Sturges and a tight team of their friends. Together they go on a remarkable three-year journey from the rainforest rivers of Mexico to the towering waterfalls of the U.S. Northwest. Their journey concludes in Canada where the team plays a cat-and-mouse game with local police before Rafa’s mission comes to a heart-stopping climax at the iconic Falls.

BIOGRAPHY

Rush Sturges, known as one of the world’s most innovative kayakers, has travelled and kayaked in more than 30 countries. Since turning professional at 16, Sturges has maintained current presence in competitive and extreme paddling while producing films about the sport. He produces, stars in and records the music for all of his films.
