The Last Light

The Last Light

"The Last Light" explores the incredible bond between a young woman and her grandmother. Ever since she was a child, Kayah knew her grandmother would be there for her and support her unconditionally. In this spatial experience you will observe personal family moments as they play out in the room around you, and witness just how important this relationship is to both women. But when everything changes, Kayah must travel back home to deal with a difficult situation. On her way back she relives childhood memories as she deals with her grief. Thanks to a beloved family scrapbook and an old friend, she is able to work through her feelings and embrace the next chapter in her life.
