The series begins with a portal opening in a desolate alley in downtown Toronto where Alar steps into what is for him a foreign and alien world called Earth. Lost and confused, he tries to use his powers to cast a teleport spell, to no avail.
Alar begins to find his strange new surroundings fascinating so he seeks out a palace where he meets up with Kim, a savvy, smart, up and coming journalist. After meeting Alar she is convinced he is nothing more than a homeless man off his meds. It will take more than a special necklace, a dimension-travelling monster, and possible imprisonment for Kim to finally realize Alar is the real deal.
“Riftworld: Chronicles” stars Tahmoh Penikett (Man of Steel, Battlestar Galactica) and Erin Karpluk (Rookie Blue) in the lead roles. The series is created and directed by Jonathan Williams and produced by First Love & Sienna Films.
