The Light Watcher

The Light Watcher is a film about a small town family is torn apart by an unthinkable tragedy. Kate, a woman who seemed to have it all, struggles to understand what happened to cause her to lose everything in just a few moments. As the town copes with the incident, Kate finds herself outcast and gravitating towards a mysterious stranger. Now she is trapped between what was her world and an uncertain future guided by a stranger determined to make her remember her painful past.


The Light Watcher focuses on small pivotal moments in life, how we are shaped by them and how they stay with us. This dramatic Independent film is a departure from the comedy screenplays that Jen Lyon has written in the past.


"I feel that no matter what walk of life you come from, there's a unifying theme here that we can all connect to and relate. I love filmmaking and having the opportunity to bring someone into a darkened theater and invite them into a story and then having each one take a different journey through their own lens. It's beyond amazing to see and be a part of that magic."
