THE SENSATION OF SIGHT also stars Ian Somerhalder, Daniel Gillies, and Jane Adams.
Description by Monterey Media:
"When life becomes a second language?"
In an awe-inspiring fusion of dream/reality, this offbeat drama about man's search for meaning amidst the ache of despair chronicles Finn (David Strathairn), a middle-aged English teacher, as he enters a midlife crisis impelled by a recent tragedy.
Finn sets afoot selling encyclopedias to the town locals, however, his anxieties begin to consume him as he finds himself pursued by an unrelenting ghost. Circling through sleepless nights and desperate days, The Sensation of Sight intertwines lives of loneliness and disconnection, fatefully leading Finn toward an unexpected and sublime awakening.
