In an awe-inspiring fusion of dream/reality, this offbeat drama about man's search for meaning amidst the ache of despair chronicles Finn (David Strathairn), a middle-aged English teacher, as he enters a midlife crisis ignited by recent tragedy. With a homemade crate containing his encyclopedias and the day's supplies secured in a worn red Radio Flyer, Finn paves a path about town selling single volumes from the set; however his anxieties begin to consume him as he finds himself pursued by an unrelenting ghost. Circling through sleepless nights and desperate days, The Sensation of Sight intertwines lives of loneliness and disconnection, fatefully leading Finn toward an unexpected and sublime awakening.
