This poetic exploration follows Finn, an introspective English teacher played by Oscar-nominated David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck) who has been undone by a recent tragedy, for which he counts himself responsible. Dream and reality are fused in this off-beat drama about a man's search for meaning amid the ache of despair. Finn's journey is chronicled as he enters, and is changed by, a profound mid-life crisis.
When he sets afoot to find redemption, Finn's 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.
