The Light Thief by Aktan Arym Kubat


They call him "Mr. Light". He is an electrician and is responsible for bringing more than just light to the people around him. In his village in the middle of the Kyrgyz mountains, far away from power and economy, everybody is drawn to his kindness: those with short circuits in their electricity, and those with short circuits in their marriage, those who have taken all the power in the city, and those who have given up the will to live. He helps everyone and is everywhere. He not only brings electric light to the lives of the inhabitants of this village, but he also spreads the light of love, loyalty, life, and most of all, lots of laughter.
