In the presence of director and screenwirter Lina Åström and actors Sara Shirpey and Hannes Fohlin.

Ava is a hugely successful and respected couple’s therapist with a hidden talent. She sees glimpses of a person’s future love life by simply putting her hand on their chest. Having seen everything that can go wrong in a relationship, Ava has grown cynical and has given up on ever finding love. But, her world is turned upside down when she meets John and accidentally sees a vision of herself marrying him.

Note from the artistic direction
How to avoid Cupid’s arrows? Using the codes of rom-coms, Out of Touch blurs the lines with a supernatural twist and a heroine a little too cynical, who is not ready to take on what her fate, no matter how radiant it may be, has in store for her. Sara Shirpey, playing the lead role, is a dazzling revelation.
