Adventure, bravery and humorous absurdity… led by an all-female cast, Men on Boats is the “true-ish” story of ten explorers on four boats charting the course of the Colorado River in 1869. Guided by a one-armed captain, the outlandish but loyal crew encounters various disasters, conflicts and harrowing adventures along the way.
