Teenager Jas discovers that a girl and an elderly woman are hiding in a barn near his home. They seem otherworldly, look different to anyone he has ever met and say that they came from the forest. When he discovers they are not human, but elves hiding from malevolent forces, he embarks on a risky journey to save them in this endearing blend of fantasy and drama, geared towards family audiences.

When electricity is first brought to rural Ireland, a young girl believes this new power is in fact a faerie who has entered her home with ‘the Light’. Her attempts at capturing this magical visitor unwittingly cause a blackout and ultimately summon the sinister creatures who haunt the surrounding countryside, the keepers of the Light
