THE STRANGER a film by César Rodríguez
Jean Louis, 36, owns a successful publishing house in Santo Domingo. He is traumatized by his ex-wife’s accident after the divorce. Every week, he goes to visit her at the facility where she remains hospitalized. He is a loner feeling overwhelmed by work and the IT novelties that are slowly offsetting the publishing business. In an attempt to get his mind off things, he decides to spend a long week at his family’s villa in Casa de Campo: an exclusive tourism complex located on the eastern region of the country. At the entry of the resort, he runs into a beautiful and intriguing woman named Rosa, whom he had briefly seen before at a restaurant in the capital. This girl is quite stunning with long black hair and a distinguishing white forelock. This unlikely encounter between such different characters will set in motion a passionate yet mysterious love affair. Jean Louis’s perception of Rosa is so bizarre and her life story is so contradictory, that he will constantly question whether he is living a reality, a dream or a nightmare.
