Strange Lines follows two young journalists - one each in India & Switzerland - who write letters to each other. They write about themselves, their lives, their cities and the state of their nations in the 21st Century. They draw their bodies and imagine the other's. And then, they meet. They invent stories and sketch their predicaments, and in return are re-drawn by notions of Home & Away, Nativity and Foreignness.
