In the Light
The three characters Husik Harutyunyan, Alexander Zhujkov and Yerjanik Gevorgyan live drastically different lives. One is in the used bottles trade, the second is a vocalist and the third is a professor and academic. However what unites them is the choir for the blind in which all three of them sing. The film follows their everyday lives capturing the struggle of disabled people who are devoid of the ability to see the sun, but continue to carry that light in their hearts.
