The River series is set on the Amazon and delves deep into superstition, magic and the unknown. When a famed explorer was reported missing and presumed dead during an expedition on the Amazon along with his crew, his wife mounts a televised expedition to find him and bring him home. Backed by the producer of her husband's show she convinces her adult son to come on the journey along with her. The group is made up of old friends, family of the missing crew and a young girl who is the daughter of the ships captain and seems to be psychic at times. Trace evidence has been found suggesting that the explorer may still be alive, turning this to a rescue mission rather than a recovery mission it originally set out to be. As the group travels deeper into the jungle along the river, strange and frightening events begin to happen. Each time they are ready to turn back another clue to the explorers whereabouts is discovered, luring further on into the unknown dangers ahead. There are explorations off the boat into the deep jungle where ancient evil and spirits are encountered in their search for the missing crew and explorer. When some members of the original crew are found and brought on board, strange events follow them, putting everyone on board in danger. Just when it seems all is lost, the explorer is found and insists they continue on with his original trip.
