A heartwarming story of brotherly love at the darkest time of year. Each year, despite his challenges, Bill decorates his house with Christmas lights. Memories of days gone by inspire and guide his work. This year Bill decorates with special purpose: his brother is coming!

The filmmaker, Beth Wishart, says 'From a Light Within' features my neighbour, Bill Thompson, a man with an indomitable spirit. I have watched him navigate the world around him for years, never letting his disability of blindness inhibit his full engagement in life.
