"The Rift" tells the stories from this unique and wonderful adventure, as well as looking into the developing father and son relationship between Robert and Louis and how it matured while in Africa. The documentary is a deeply personal look into their family life, and how Louis’s parents divorce affected their family. It has a relatable feel promoting conversations, however tricky they might be and showing that expanding your knowledge of a situation can affect a relationship for the positive.
