The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar, or a parking lot, or at the grocery store. His identity is unknown. His motives are unclear. His information is undeniable. Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world.
Adam Price leads a contented life in a well-to-do neighbourhood with his wife, Corinne and his two boys, little knowing his world was about to be shattered by a stranger.
Adam was with the other dads enjoying a drink before the lacrosse team selections when a stranger approaches him revealing a secret his wife had kept. One that would forever change their relationship. Adam is at first unbelieving, then devastated as he investigates the stranger’s so called evidence. When Adam confronts Corinne, she is reluctant to discuss the matter and makes arrangements to meet Adam and talk over dinner. Corinne doesn’t show up. Then Adam receives a text from Corinne saying they need some time apart.
Adam trusted Corinne with his life. And yet…
He had seen it a million times in his work. Put simply, people fool you. He and Corinne might be a cohesive unit, but they were also individuals. It would be nice to trust unconditionally and forget the stranger ever appeared—Adam was tempted to do just that—but that felt a tad too much like the proverbial sticking your head in the sand.
