Yakona means "rising water" in the language of the indigenous people of the San Marcos River in Texas. This film is a visual journey through the crystal clear waters of the San Marcos River and its headwaters at Spring Lake. The story takes the viewer from prehistoric times, through the modern era, on an impressionistic journey from the perspective of the river.
