Eddied out in a remote Ecuadorian village, politics and local beliefs force a group of kayakers to desert their hopes of a first descent on the Rio Mulatos and Rio Coangos. Unwilling to simply go home, Team NRS paddlers Todd Wells and Galen Volckhausen set their sights on the Rio Zamora instead. ZAMORA is a story about cultural barriers, personality barriers and physical barriers between paddlers and kayaking expeditions. And it offers a rare look into the gritty aspects of a first descent and what happens when plans fall through.
