Archie won’t use the lift. Lily draws on her Underground map. Everyone is afraid of heights and the future is vertical.
It is London between the wars and Archie and Lily have recently moved into one of the city’s first ‘skyscrapers’. Amongst the changing skyline, seen from above and traversed using the Underground network below, the two navigate an existence which places them increasingly further into the sky and deeper into the ground. 'Skylines' maps the attempts of ordinary people to come to terms with both the distance and closeness of their newly vertical lives and what it means to confront the future in a world where everything seems suspended.
