Feeling Through

This coming-of-age story follows 18-year-old Tereek—a kind but guarded teen wandering the streets of New York, desperate for a place to crash—and his encounter with Artie, a deaf-blind man in need of help getting home. What begins as an awkward meeting between strangers becomes an intimate bond between friends, and a nightlong journey that forever changes Tereek. Someone who can neither see nor hear Tereek is ultimately able to tune into what he is truly struggling with, inspiring Tereek to realize his own sense of purpose.
