PITCH : Parallel Lines tells the stories of Olga Perez, a formerly undocumented maid, and Chuck Foss, a former U.S. border patrol agent, who respectively live in the border towns of Juarez, Mexico, and El Paso, Texas, and whose occupational histories would seem to put them at odds. But the stories Olga and Chuck share reveal a much more complex relationship between those who police the border and those who cross it, which also includes compassion, respect, and a shared daily existence.
