Based on the life story of HUANG Yu-Siang, who stars as himself, TOUCH OF THE LIGHT tells HUANG’s story as a blind piano prodigy from rural Taiwan and his relationship with Xiao Jie (Sandrine PINNA), a young woman who dreams of becoming a dancer despite enormous challenges. Critically acclaimed and warmly received worldwide, TOUCH OF THE LIGHT is blessed with the most striking performance by HUANG Yu-Siang as it celebrates triumphs of those who dare to dream.
