Tocando la Luz / Touch the Light weaves together the lives of three blind women trying to survive in the rapidly changing country of Cuba. Lis is a talented singer who wrestles with self-doubt and the pressure to perform. Margarita struggles to begin life anew after losing her beloved husband. Mily dreams of starting a family, despite her overprotective mother.

From the music halls of Havana, a cinema club for the blind and a national singing competition, their stories reveal both the pain and exhilaration of fighting for independence. From the producing team of Jennifer Redfearn (director) and Tim Metzger (cinematographer).
