An ode to city life, TOUCH explores the universal themes of isolation and need for community when two strangers make the most important connection of their lives while waiting for a train.
Busily on our ways, preoccupied with our own worries and checklists, normally the most we can offer another human being is a cursory glance, a stiff nod, a brief smile. Every day, millions of people pass one another by, mostly unaware of the other’s existence.
“… semolina from the deli, oranges for the game… ‘a bomb exploded…’ where?” …ugh, if he would just shift his stupid newspaper… just slightly, c’monn…there you g- shit, the train!”
A true human connection is rarely ever made. But they do happen to us all and when they do, they are fleeting but deep, sometimes forever changing. And we are reminded of how much we share in common with the strangers that surround us.
