With the advent of an eye condition called RP and the imminent loss of his vision, David returns to his home town of Galion, Ohio, to test his memory against the truth. He reunites with old friends and finds out that much has changed and still more has stayed the same. Producer Susan Davis presents this portrait of blindness and insight.
Blindness and Insight was written and narrated by David Stewart. It was produced by Susan Davis, with field recording by Robin Wise, and production assistance from Gemma Hooley.
