For We Are Strangers reveals the consciousness of a prison counsellor, Xuan, who slowly succumbs to the trauma of her past after being assigned to the same man who assaulted her. The inmate is due to be released for a minor felony but fails to recognise her. Xuan's subsequent actions blur the line between victim and assailant, altering the viewer's perception of morality and retribution.
In the film, Xuan and Adrien both visually parallel each other and share a common thread, but they will always remain strangers.
