Episode Info:

First time storyteller Marco Salsiccia is a visual animator and gamer whose world is upended when he starts to go blind. To escape the social isolation and loneliness, he attempts to master the new low vision tools given to him by the Lighthouse for the Blind, and then decides to make it fun by using them to explore dating sites. One night, his text-to-speech reader steers him toward OKCupid, and to an incredible woman who teaches him to live in a brand new way. Rather than having his life diminished by retinal cancer, his world - and his understanding of what love is - expands beyond his wildest dreams.
