Returning to rural Slovakia for Christmas from his construction job in Germany, Milan is immediately confronted with the familial consequences of his absence. His wife is unravelling, his children wayward, and his elder son’s secrecy soon leads Milan to discover that he has been indoctrinated into a radical paramilitary youth group. Exploring the rise of far-right extremism and ideology in Eastern Europe, Let There Be Light is a sincere and veracious sophomore feature from director Marko Škop, which dissects the reverberations of neglected fatherhood and the complicated reality of life for returning migrant workers.
