The earthen dam above Brownsville, Texas shows signs of imminent collapse, but the mayor, John Cutler, refuses to act. A maverick town boardmember, Paul Burke, enlists the aid of a helicopter pilot, Steve Brannigan, to save the townspeople.
In August 1976, Robert Culp and Martin Milner signed to star. Filming started that month at Fern Ridge Reservoir west of Eugene, Oregon. Filming continued in Brownsville, Oregon and other locations in the area. The Brownsville Christian Church was used as the hospital, while the Brownsville Fire Station/City Hall was used as City Hall, but only for exterior shots, as was Main Street. The nearby Crawfordsville Covered Bridge was used also. Brownsville is also the same town that was used to film many scenes for Stand By Me in 1985.
The Los Angeles Times said it "fails to offer much excitement".
