Carl and Rita rent a river house on stilts in a remote area of Western Europe. As the river rises below and dark clouds form above them, they struggle with their individual pursuits and relationship. Rita embraces the isolation as a welcoming atmosphere that will allow her to complete her thesis. Carl becomes irritated by boredom and seeks out meaningful experiences to fill his time and define who he is. Along the way each must contend with others that enter their lives and with their often blurred intentions.

Alex Potts spins an intriguing tale about self-discovery and relationships set against the harsh backdrop of nature. The writing convincingly explores a troubled relationship, giving believable voices to unique characters. The art broadens the characters’ personalities through strong facial expressions and body language. The colors used throughout It’s Cold in the River at Night also contribute to the cold and bleak backdrop the weather and environment play in the story.
