Attempting to connect the invisible dots between individuals, Touch is part science, part spirituality, and part psychology. As we watch ordinary, seemingly unrelated people all over the world immersed in daily routines , we begin to contemplate the ways that we all interconnect thanks to the vision of creator and writer Tim Kring ("Heroes" and "Crossing Jordan") and executive producers Peter Chermin and Katherine Pope (both of "New Girl" and "Terra Nova" fame). The audience follows the personal journey of Martin Bohm (played by Kiefer Sutherland), a 9-11 widower and single father, as he attempts to care for and connect with his emotionally-challenged 11-year-old son, Jake (played by David Mazouz). When the audience first meets Bohm, it is clear that he has done everything?including continuously changing jobs and rearranging every of aspect of his life?to devote time and energy to an apparently autistic Jake. We immediately feel sympathetic to Bohm's plight as he struggles to reach Jake who never speaks nor rarely makes eye contact, shows little emotion, and never allows anyone to touch him, including his father.
