  7. Territory of Light primarily takes place in a small Tokyo apartment where the narrator s dark descent into mental instability contrasts with the constant flood of light which variably dazzle and disorientate the narrator and her young daughter Darkness and lightness eventually combined and coalesce as the narrator, at the height of an epiphany, seeks to dissolve into light, drowning her grief and solitude into the perpetual stream of sunlight No one must ever know about this place that made Terr [...]
