The survivalist thriller also features rising star Anna Pniowksy (Pen 15, He’s Out There) and Tom Bower (Out of the Furnace, As You Like It). 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.
