After a major crisis, a man attempts to track down his long-lost first love, only to discover that she was killed in a car accident many years prior. His online search leads him to her younger sister, an aspiring musician who bears a striking resemblance to the girl he used to love. Quickly becoming obsessed, he arranges a not-so-chance meeting and a relationship blossoms between the two - before he has a chance to disclose his true identity.
Ryan Patrick Bachand’s heartfelt and vulnerable performance brings the character of Colin to vivid life, and in his directorial debut, Chicago-native Sam Kretchmar (who also co-wrote and shot the film) paints an intimate portrait of a relationship based on deceit. In the tradition of such timeless music-based films as ONCE and BEGIN AGAIN, and featuring a wonderful performance by rising young singer-songwriter Gabbi McPhee (in her feature film debut), KEEP IN TOUCH is a warm and winning romantic drama about love, family, and finding self-worth.
