Can anyone explain the lightning network and how it works?

So I know it's supposed to make bitcoin faster, cheaper and people can run thier own 'nodes'. is having you're own node financially sustainable? Is their any cons to the lightning network? It sounds like it can solve btcs scalability issue yet I don't hear many people talking about it. Any reason why? Thanks
