THE RIVER WITHIN-FEATURE FILM
by Ivan Botha
In “The River Within” (Stroomop) we meet five women who are all drowning in the rough waters of their own realities. For individual reasons, these women end up together on ‘Adventure Therapy’ on the Orange River for a river-rafting trip. During this adventure, their raft is swept away and their guide is lost in the terrifying water. The women are left to their own devices to survive in the wilderness, unaware of the fact that their own realities and life experiences have already prepared them for the challenges ahead. But will that be enough?
Stroomop is an adventure film about self-discovery, self-acceptance, forgiveness and healing .
