A young, seemingly guileless millionaire businessman, an unsuspecting, progressive, middle-class woman who meets and falls in love with him, a tortured ex-cop who gets entangled in their tragic love story, and a hardworking reporter with a never-say-die attitude – these are just some of the characters in this suspense-filled love story about what it means to hold on to everything that makes you, you.
‘Twisted Doubles’ is not just a story about double trouble. It examines human identity as it is defined for us by everyone else. It journeys through the identity trail as set by any bureaucracy, from birth to death and beyond. It explores the irony in trying to walk the legal path, whether tested, proposed, or new, in a world where humans increasingly find themselves reduced to any single thing that identifies them where it matters most.
Set in India, with the South Asian Tsunami of 2004 as a backdrop, ‘Twisted Doubles’ is a universal story of identity crises that will enthrall just as much as it will make you weep.
