Courage ~ Perseverance ~ Working Together to Accomplish A Goal!
I didn’t think I was going to like this movie, but I did, and it’s a romance. I didn’t see that coming. The conditions were horrible ~ the sweltering heat, the insects, dangerous wildlife, the rapids ~ I shudder when I think about it. But, it was a good film! Well done!
