Breaking Free From the Eye


Brett Foster just recently lost almost all of his vision. For him, blindness makes him feel as if he is in a box he can’t break out of and his spirits are plummeting because of it. Brett’s wife, Tracy, desperately wants her lively husband back, a little bit of help caring for their two children and she also would like to see him remain employed.
So Brett attends a school for the blind in order to help these desires come true. While attending this school, one of Brett’s instructors, Mike, wants very badly to see Tracy’s desires come true. But in the midst of covering the various skills a blind person can use, they both find themselves in a place they could never have imagined, dealing with issues that lie far outside their typical curriculum– desperately attempting to save the Earth.
Eyesight, blindness, meaning, value, beauty, ethics and ultimate reality are all items on their curriculum and they find out that all will be lost unless they can “Break Free from the Eye.”
