Touched is a 1983 American romantic drama film starring Robert Hays and directed by John Flynn.


Its plot is about two inmates of a mental institution, a man named Daniel and a woman named Jennifer, who are not as ill as the psychiatrists at the institution perceive them to be. Daniel and Jennifer escape to make lives for themselves together in the world at large.[2]



The movie was filmed under the working title Some Sunny Day.[3] It features extensive scenes shot on the boardwalk in Wildwood, NJ, including locations on and near Morey's Pier, during the end of the summer season and the beginning of the off-season in 1982. Other amusement piers, including Hunt's Pier, can be seen in the backgrounds of scenes.


In addition to the instrumental score by Shirley Walker, the film also features a song sung by Laura Branigan.
