Episode 09 - “Eyes” by Michael Mau
A moment of eye contact.
A statement from Michael:
“I am an actor, teacher and father of twins trying to find a direction and stay strong for my 10-year-old twins.
I chose this story for its brevity, but also its gentle sweetness. When I wrote it, of course, touching someone else's hand in public wasn't forbidden.”
