by Abhisek Bhattacharya

A shady businessman, Ralph, a physically disabled writer, Murphy, whose stories foretell every action Ralph would take, and a dingy basement serving as an interrogation chamber- that’s how ‘Strange Connection’ begins. As Ralph grills Murphy, he realizes that every step he takes to evade Murphy’s narrative propels him toward the destiny Murphy had already scripted for him. The power balance between the interrogator and the prisoner oscillates, relationships disintegrate, and the boundaries between past and present, good and evil, and right and wrong dissolve into a murky haze. Will Ralph unearth how Murphy is sabotaging his plans? Or will Murphy triumph in her quest to conquer Ralph?
