Set at an elegant restaurant in Göteborg, the Intimate Touch revolves around a business dinner between a Syrian refugee and a Swedish journalist.In addition to being a recent arrival, Adnan is a dedicated Islamic fundamentalist, while for her part, Ingrid is a well-known writer and political activist, with strong feminist values.

The formal purpose of their meeting is to discuss an article that Ingrid is writing about a recent terrorist attack. But their deeper motive — and the focus of the drama — is a once-in-a-lifetime romantic attraction, and desire for a future together, that has each of them bargaining with their own moral convictions.

PRODUCTION
The Intimate Touch is currently in pre-production. Before the script was written, a pitch video was shot to present the concept to investors. In it, we meet Mohamed (later changed to Adnan) and Ingrid’s charming but oddly aloof waiter, who has his own ideas about ideology, and how it affects human judgement.
