Angry and rebellious, seventeen-year-old Clay Watkins (Sam Huntington) is bent on self-destruction until his Grandpa (Barry Corbin), an old-fashioned Texas cowboy and acting sheriff of the county, gives the young offender a choice: smarten up by going to jail or by taking a wilderness survival trip down the Pecos River.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in River’s End...

In this tale of reformation, the greatest concerns for young viewers will be the violent content. While some incidents prove not to be what they seem (such as a bloodied body that appears to have been beaten with a baseball bat and a young woman calling for help when she is held down by her boyfriend), others are depicted as real. These include bullying (such as teasing, name calling, roughhousing, and putting a snake down a boy’s pants), drug trafficking, auto theft, kidnapping, threats with guns, hand-to-hand combat and a scuffle involving a knife. Natural predators, like rattlesnakes, scorpions and centipedes, also come into play. The bodies of some dead characters are shown. As well, the script is colored by terms of deity used as expletives, frequent mild and occasional moderate profanities, along with a wall poster displaying a rude finger gesture. Teenagers exchange kisses and an underage youth is shown smoking a cigarette.
