Giving Into Light is the story of a woman who experiences what she calls ‘post-partum illumination’ following the birth of her first child. Her attempts to understand this heightened perception of the world (contrasted with hilariously-rendered scenes of sleep-deprivation and fluorescent-lit church basement playgroups) lead her on an intuition-inspired journey to a small village in Mexico, a place replete with colour, festivals, bustling markets, memorable characters, myths and unexpected gifts of wisdom.
