Default Light ray Question

Is it possible to have a light to come through a window, hit one wall and to reflect to another wall? (Like bounce off one to another) if so could some one shine a light on this subject (no pun intended) I’d be grateful.

3D light doesn't necessarily react the same as in real world. The best way to get the look you want is to probably have multiple lights.

Mental Ray's Final Gather does this. I'm not sure but at least in some renderers the Global Illumination function does this too.
