The Marsyangdi River of Nepal, the Brahmaputra River in India and the White Nile River in Uganda are all threatened or are currently being destroyed by large scale hydroelectric projects. The Last Descent follows a small group of world class whitewater kayakers with kayaks packed with food and camping gear, on what could be the last journey down each of these rivers. The film ends in California with a trip down the Tuolumne River and a look at the movement to restore Hetch Hetchy valley in Yosemite National Park.
