One couple begins a Monday much like any other, but an arbitrary moment quickly sends them on a course of turmoil and uncertainty. Dez Parker, a former professional football star, and his fiancé, Sabrina, a divorced tax lawyer, have spent two years carefully carving out their future together. But nothing is ever guaranteed.
When Sabrina disappears from her office parking lot, a city-wide search is launched. The case goes cold from the beginning, and the only way for Dez to cope is to retreat into memories, relying heavily on his best friend, Alex, while he waits for a miracle. Three days later, Sabrina is found and in the days and months that follow, she and Dez attempt to navigate through a new normal of sleepless nights, mood swings, and relationship missteps.
A uniquely crafted love story, layered with doubt and determination, A Light in the Dark is a daring and willful account of one couple’s struggle to regain a future amid the fallout of three fateful days in October. This is a story about life after survival.
