A romantic and thrilling story that spans several decades and continents, Touch follows one man's emotional journey to find his first love again.

Spanning several decades and continents, we follow 70-year-old widower Kristófer (Egill Ólafsson, Trapped) who embarks on a remarkable journey to London right when the pandemic hits.

50 years earlier, as an economics student in London, young Kristófer (Pálmi Kormákur, The Deep) meets his first love, Miko (played by model and songwriter Kōki), in a Japanese restaurant. Their love blossoms, but one day Miko suddenly disappears without a trace.

Decades later, with time ticking away, Kristófer is on a quest to track down Miko to find out what happened to her. From London, his journey takes him halfway across the globe and all the way to Japan.

Written and directed by award-winning Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur (known for his films Everest,  Adrift, and series Trapped) and based on the best-selling Icelandic novel by Ólafur Jóhann Ólafsson, Touch is a captivating, intimate story of passionate love and cross-cultural connection.
