Kyle is a quiet, introverted young astronomer when he meets the vibrant, outgoing and openhearted Zoe. They fall in love and marry and then the unthinkable happens, turning Kyle’s enviable happiness upside down. Tracing his journey through terrifying unanswered questions and memories of deep love, Touch is about a man in despair questioning whether there is any point to rediscovering passion, risking connection, and groping toward the touch that will rekindle joy.
