The Strange follows an unnamed, undocumented immigrant who tries to forge a new life in a Western country where he doesn't speak the language.
Jérôme Ruillier's story is deftly told through myriad viewpoints, as each narrator recounts a situation in which they crossed paths with the newly-arrived foreigner.
Told with beautiful simplicity, The Strange shows one person's struggle to adapt while dealing with the often brutal and unforgiving attitudes of the employers, neighbors, and strangers who populate this new land.
