Touch Me

Touch Me

Alice has cancer. She has already lost one breast. And now her hair starts to fall out. What else will the disease take away from her? Moritz, her boyfriend, is as overwhelmed by the situation as she is. The fear of losing each other makes them almost forget the one thing they can still hang on to: their love ... for each other and for themselves.
