Touch, the Forgotten Sense


Imagine the scene: you wake up one morning; you see the alarm clock; you hear the radio; you smell the coffee. Yet something is wrong. At first you can't figure out what it is. You don't feel ill; you don't feel pain...then you realize, you don't feel anything.

This thought provoking documentary will attempt to give the sense of touch its proper place, as the most important of our senses. Without the sense of touch, things we take for granted become almost impossible.

By bringing together people who use or study touch on a daily basis, as well as meeting the rare few persons in the world who have lost their sense of touch, this scientific and artistic film aims to create an awareness of the importance and beauty of human touch.
