Lighter is a film about people. Real and raw people, seen through the eyes of a lighter. The tale starts in 1939 and as we follow the lighter from hand to hand, we learn that every person has a struggle, pains and joys. No matter background, race or time, we all as humans go through similar things. Lighter touches upon important topics ranging from mental health and addiction, to domestic violence, abuse and grief. The stories are told with a combination of light and dark, with just enough symbiosis that the viewers are left moved, but also with hope.
