In the middle of an anonymous city, a person collapses, apparently having lost consciousness. Some strangers pass by, others embrace her. In a solitary quest for intimacy, her gaze and body stagger, blinded by a world of indifference. Strangers is an intimate investigation on resonance in a world of passersby and a graciously choreographed act. The film competed at the 2021 Locarno Film Festival.
