Touching Life brings the viewer into the inspiring world of a visually impaired couple raising their seven year old son. Yuko, originally from Japan, now lives in Vancouver with her husband Thilo, both of whom lost their sight in their twenties. In this ode to happiness, where life is felt rather than seen, we learn about the lives of Yuko and Thilo and how they pursed their dream of overcoming their disability, falling in love and reaching their ultimate goal of becoming parents. Because their son Kurtis is sighted, he becomes the link between the worlds of shadows and light. He lends them his sight while his parents raise him into adulthood. By delving into the lives of Yuko, Thilo and Kurtis, we rediscover our own. They remind us of a truth we canít see with our own eyes: that love makes the invisible luminous.
