Comes A Bright Day is an offbeat, blackly comic, coming-of age love-story set during the armed robbery of one of London's most exclusive jewelers. Sometimes funny, often dark, always captivating and never what you expect.
SAM SMITH is twenty-five, bright, ambitious and not unattractive; so earning minimum wage as a bellboy at a 5* luxury hotel isn’t where he wants to be; running a restaurant with his best friend ELLIOT is. He has the people skills, the business plan and the best young chef around, but with a chronic fear of rejection he lacks those vital investors to make the dream a reality.
MARY BRIGHT is as radiantly beautiful as the jewellery she sells in Clara, London’s most discerning jewelers. But looks aren’t everything. For Mary life is about so much more than material wealth and she’s ready to turn her back on London and escape to the other side of the world.
When Sam meets Mary in the café where Elliott works he is very quickly and very truly smitten. Every other plan and thought goes out of the window as he overcomes his fear of rejection and follows Mary back to Clara with the intention of asking her out on a date. Unbeknown to Sam, armed thieves CAMERON and CLEGG also have an appointment at Clara and they aren’t planning on leaving without the two million pound Stahl Papillon brooch. With the panic button pressed and the armed response unit swarming into the area Sam, Mary and cantenkerous elderly shop owner CHARLIE SILVER are taken hostage.
Under extreme threat and with constant twists and turns, what follows puts each of the characters and their shortfalls under persistent examination. This is a love story that undergoes the severest trial and sacrifice. For all of them, searching for the hidden gem reveals truths that will make their lives infinitely richer.
