A forbidden love, a neglected dam, a doomed valley
In 1889, Johnstown Pennsylvania is booming - riding the wave of the Industrial Revolution. For 18 year old Samuel Wulff however, it's a grimy steel town with the mill his only future. His one beacon is Abigail Walker, the pretty socialite he meets to steal kisses ... and more. Theirs is a clandestine courtship though, as both their families vehemently disapprove.
But a threat far worse than their secret lurks in the bustling valley - an aging dam just 14 miles upriver. Behind it lurks the swollen waters of Lake Conemaugh.
