A man and woman wake up in a strange apartment surrounded by drug paraphernalia and an empty crib. They must piece together who they are, and were, and where that baby might be, all while trying to create a new future for themselves.

Victor is a ruthless fashion designer in the 1970s at the top of his game. Esme, his glamorous protégé and muse, is pushed aside when an ordinary Midwestern woman inspires Victor to make his artistry accessible to the masses.

Skipping back and forth in time, Everything You Touch is a viciously funny look at the struggle to find an identity that's more than skin deep.
