Blending science, spirituality and emotion, Touch will follow seemingly unrelated people all over the world whose lives affect each other in ways seen and unseen, known and unknown.

Martin soon realizes that it’s his job to decipher the numbers his son is obsessed with and recognize their meaning. As he puts the pieces together, he will help people across the world connect as their lives intersect according to the patterns Jake has foreseen, and his simple quest to connect with his son will shape humanity’s destiny.
