  2. In a city full of people who have grown used to avoiding each other, two strangers meet and then must choose between being comfortable and being honest with themselves about what they want. The strangers challenge each other to go outside their comfort zones as they’re drawn closer than they ever could have anticipated in the span of a single day. Almost like a dream, “Strangers” explores a chance encounter that offers a glimpse into own subconscious and our fantasies about being loved and understood.
