Into Daylight focuses on the intimate relationship between a young man, Mark, and his deaf girlfriend, Emma.

While spending an evening at the beach, Mark teases Emma about the surprise he has planned for her birthday the following night. With some help from his deaf sister, Sam, Mark surprises Emma with a romantic dinner. Afterwards, Mark gives Emma a silk nightgown as a gift. She stays the night and they have sex for the first time. Mark believes he planned the perfect night, but realizes that Emma does not feel the same way when she rushes out of his apartment. Through a discussion he has with his sister, Mark discovers that he unintentionally raped Emma. In attempts to right his horrific wrong, Mark rushes over to Emma’s house and apologizes. Emma and Mark are left on opposing sides of a fence, not certain of how to move forward.
