Touch Me

Category: short
Director: Eileen Byrne
Country: Luxembourg
Year: 2018
Length: 21'
Production Status: completed


Alice is undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Although an operation is successful, chemotherapy and the resulting hair loss remind the young woman that her struggle for survival is not yet over. Although her boyfriend Moritz tries to be supportive, he isn't capable of fully understanding her state of mind (or at least that's how it seems to Alice). Her shame at her operation-scarred body continues to place a barrier between her and the one person who should be closest to her. Alice tries to overcome her demons, but her reserves of strength are limited. Touch Me is a sensitive, highly intimate film about the feelings of anxiety that accompany an uncertain future, but also about having the courage to live with those fears.
