More About "Coming to Light":
Aaron was a victim of sexual abuse as a child and has lived for more than half his life with the burden of this dark secret. As a result of this he has had to adjust to a life where the physical demon of his trauma is with him everywhere he goes. When a police investigation is launched into his abuser, he becomes conflicted between carrying on with life socially imprisoned by this monster or coming forward about what happened to him and subsequently confronting his demon head on.
