Injured by an IED in Afghanistan, Tesla has returned home to London, but it doesn't feel like home anymore. Suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), with no friends or family, he is alone with his regrets and a very bleak horizon.
That is, until the universe conspires to help him with an unlikely friendship. The charming and larger than life Sky bounds into Tesla's world, quickly proving that friendship can be a great healer. Joy, enthusiasm and hope prove infectious and soon Tesla, not only finds meaning but also, a job and a girlfriend. However, Sky is hiding a secret and it's catching up with him fast. Even a metropolis can be a lonely place if you're hiding from your problems. Tomorrow is a story of how friendship, love and courage can overcome great odds.
Sometimes the hardest battles are fought at home and the only way out, is to let others in.

In support of FirstLight Trust
FirstLight Trust was established in 2012, with our first hub being located in Scarborough, since then we have grown to 6 hubs located around the country. We relieve and protect the health, and in so doing rehabilitate leaving and former members of the military forces affected by physical wounds and injury, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and psychological issues of disempowerment resulting from service life. Working at grass roots and street level we help those ‘hard to reach’ veterans who have fallen through the ‘net’ and may have ended up on the streets.
We provide activity programmes, psychotherapeutic services, advice and recreational facilities with the object of making a difference to veterans lives by continually seeking new and innovative ways to help them on the pathway to recovery. Our work is funded through our hubs, where both veterans and members of the public can purchase home-made cakes and drinks.
