TOUCHED is the love story between a man (Randall
Batinkoff) who awakens from a coma without the
ability to “feel,” and the nurse (Jenna Elfman) who

He loved his work. His life was working.
And then… his life took a turn. One that he never
could have predicted… One that he never thought
he’d be able to survive.

In the tradition of “Ordinary People” and “Terms Of
