Months after they broke up, Gunnar receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar. 

He finds Einar in a secluded cabin under a glacier, where they begin to deal with their past - 

and are haunted by their dead relationship.

 

Rift premiered at the 40th Göteborg International Film Festival as the festival's closing film. It won the award for Artistic Achievement at the 2017 Outfest Film Festival in Los Angeles, and Best Cinematography at the 20th annual California Independent Film Festival.
