The Stranger is the mysterious and emotional story of a woman (Claire) who finds a man (X) stranded and exhausted by a sandcastle at the beach. This stranger follows her uninvited to her house. The woman lets him in. Both do not yet grasp what it is that attracts them to each other. All they recognise in each other is the experience of loss. Mysteriously, they share the same dreams that lead to understanding and to a fusion of their embodied memories and sensations. A mutual healing process. Another couple (Isabel and Vincent) on vacation to try and save their relationship intrudes upon this healing process and things soon begin to change for all concerned.
