Touched with Fire stars Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby as two poets with bipolar disorder whose art is fueled by their emotional extremes. When they meet in a treatment facility, their chemistry is instant and intense, driving each other’s mania to new heights. They pursue their passion, which breaks outside the bounds of sanity, swinging them from fantastical highs to tormented lows until they ultimately must choose between sanity and love. The film also stars Griffin Dunne, Christine Lahti and Bruce Altman. TOUCHED WITH FIRE is produced by Jeremy Alter and Kristina Nikolova and executive produced by Spike Lee.
