The Rift is a film about basic human attitudes, emotions and passions of its main characters; Štefan, a seasonal worker, Jože, the village codger, and two sisters, young Anica and her older sister Marta. The story unwinds in a remote Slovene village in the early seventies. The relations of characters with the Catholic environment in which they live do not satisfy their needs; in their longing for Good they are forced to confront Evil.
