“Touch” is a haunting mystery that unfolds layer by layer about Dawn, and her daughter Steph, who take to the road after Dawn assaults a man. Hiding out in a secluded motel, Dawn is desperate to keep her daughter hidden yet entertains a risky sexual liaison with a local cop, Nick, by night. Dawn is hiding from something far greater than her words or actions reveal and when the man tracking her closes in, her past finally catches up with her and a shattering truth is revealed, forcing her to go to the one place she doesn’t want to face.
