English Summary:

The River is a 1984 American drama film directed by Mark Rydell, written by Robert Dillon and Julian Barry, and stars Sissy Spacek, Mel Gibson, and Scott Glenn. The film tells the story of a struggling farm family in the Tennessee valley trying to keep its farm from going under in the face of bank foreclosures and floods. The father faces the dilemma of having to work as a strikebreaker in a steel mill to keep his family farm from foreclosure. It was based on the true story of farmers who unknowingly took jobs as strikebreakers at a steel mill after their crops had been destroyed by rain. 

He might be able to hold back the river. But could he hold back the greed of man?

Farming family battles severe storms, a bank threatening to reposses their farm, and other hard times in a battle to save and hold on to their farm.


Hungarian Summary:

Sarvey Tom a lápvidéken nevelkedett. Családja a farmból él. A folyamatos eső- zés kétségessé teszi megélhetésüket. A bank elutasítja Tom kölcsönkérelmét, mert a környék nagyrészt már az intézmény tulajdonában van, s a Sarvey-birtok- ra is fáj a foguk. Tom a nehezebb utat választja, s megpróbál egymaga szembe- szállni a természettel és a helyi zsarnokoskodó pénzemberekkel.
