Light of My Life Official Trailer (2019) - Casey Affleck.
Almost a decade after a mysterious pandemic wiped out most of the female population, a man and his daughter Rag (Anna Pniowsky) journey through British Columbia. Rag is one of the very few females of the human species left on Earth. Her dad must protect her by disguising her as his son from male bandits who are looking for any female human. In a flashback, before his wife dies, he promises to her that he will tell his daughter everything about her mom.
After leaving the woods where they first camped, the two take shelter in an abandoned house. After staying for a few days, the two narrowly escape from four men breaking in looking for them. The father hitches a ride and steals the car from the owner to get themselves to his grandparents' home. Arriving there, they find that the house is now occupied by Tom (Tom Bower) and his two friends Calvin (Hrothgar Mathews) and Lemmy (Timothy Webber). Tom is a religious man and has a friendly approach to the father and Rag. At night, the two sneak out their belongings into a nearby cabin in case of a "red alert", a term the father uses when dangerous men are approaching. The next morning, Tom teaches Rag how to use a shotgun for self-defense. After Tom eventually discovers that his "son" is a girl, he questions the father with concern and tells him that he lost his nine female relatives in a matter of weeks. Moved by his story, the father admits that she is, indeed, his daughter.
Later, three men arrive, barge into the house and kill Tom and Lemmy (Calvin apparently tipped off the intruders). Rag and her father hide in the attic and he manages to drop Rag out of the window. The father then proceeds to fight and kill the first and the second bandit; however, the last bandit almost strangles the father to death. Rag appears and fires a shotgun at the bandit, killing him but also hitting her father's waist. They go to the cabin, where Rag removes the shot pellet from her father's wound. While the father takes a rest, a flashback shows the father promising his wife that he will look after Rag. After Rag treated her father's wound, the father says that they can go to a safe place with friendly people that Tom mentioned earlier. As he breaks down in tears, Rag comforts him.
