For The Light And Darkness is a visual story loosely inspired by the ancient Manichean idea of a primeval conflict between the spiritual world of light and material world of darkness. In director's perspective, all events of the world are part of the eternal cycle of changes between powers of light and darkness. The primary visual layer depicts main characters - an ethereal dancer (Light) and a mighty shaman (Darkness) as they trade the powers. The secondary layer features powerful and rich symbolic imagery to illustrate the transitions of power.
