Plot

'Light of My Life' is set in a post-apocalyptic world in which a pandemic has wiped out the planet's female population. A father (Casey Affleck, 'Manchester by The Sea', 'Gone Baby Gone', 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford') hides out in the woods with his pre-adolescent daughter, Rag (Anna Pniowsky, 'The Hot Zone', 'He's Out There', 'Wait Till Helen Comes'), after the death of his wife and her mother (Elisabeth Moss, 'The Handmaid's Tale', 'Top of the Lake', 'The Kitchen'). Rag often has to disguise herself as a boy by wearing her hair shorn short and baggy clothing, and Rag's father regularly practices escape drills in case they are found and captured. The two roam around the stark Okanga Valley in British Columbia, fleeing violence and any remnant of the plague that could threaten Rag. Father and daughter must bond together to survive whilst also letting each other bloom into their own person in this stark and difficult world.

'Light of My Life' is Casey Affleck's sophomore directorial feature film. The script was also penned by Affleck. Joining the cast are Tom Bower ('El Camino: A Breaking Bad Film', 'As You Like It'), Hrothgar Mathews ('When Calls the Heart', 'Literally') and Timothy Webber ('War of the Planet of the Apes', 'A Series of Unfortunate Events').
