A Light in the Dark puts you in the shoes of Hao-Chen Jiang, a young man who wakes up to find himself tied to a chair, in a dim and dreary room he does not recognize. Standing before him is a young woman with a knife who informs him that he has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom.

With more questions than answers, Hao-Chen must find a way to escape but perhaps there is more to this than merely money…

The rich boy stuck in his never changing daily life…
The fierce girl struggling for survival…
Two people in totally opposite positions in life.

During his days of imprisonment, they will learn of a world they were never aware of which will crumble away at their deep-rooted prejudices. In the face of confusion and the choices before them, what will they find…?”
