Disguising his daughter as a boy, the father struggles to protect her from newfound threats as they are forced from their home into dangerous territory. Prepared to defend his daughter at all costs, their bond and the character of humanity is tested.

Light of My Life also had festival showings in Germany, Berlin, Jerusalem and the Czech Republic. It will be available on home entertainment formats this October.
