RIFT is high concept animated feature film, about a former marine who goes to extreme measures to save his kid brother who has the ability to tap into multi-dimensions across space and time.

Max, a young boy held captive in a research facility uses his ability to create rifts in the fabric of spacetime, across parallel universes, looking for the one in which his brother Leon, a former-marine, manages to rescue him. With attempt after attempt ending in Leon’s death, the strain starts to take its toll on both brothers. When Max discovers his captors are using his power against him, he realizes he must stop focusing on how the story ends and rewrite the story from the beginning.
