Deliverance is the story of four middle-aged men who go on a fateful canoe voyage in rural Georgia. In the wilderness they encounter hardships, challenges to their mental integrity, and the depredations of inbred hill-dwellers who accost and rape one of their members. Becoming paranoid and hostile, the four stumble into a series of mistakes and terrible situations that leads to injury, death, and permanent psychological scarring for every member of the expedition.
