After meeting the man of her dreams on Facebook, Amanda finds herself being swept off her feet by Casper, the dedicated father and charming heir to a family fortune. There’s only one problem—everything that Casper has told her is a lie. This documentary-narrative hybrid is made all the more fascinating with reenactments played out almost entirely by the actual characters of this twisted tale of an imposter. Fans of the investigative podcast Dirty John will find themselves being drawn in by the similar themes of love, lies, and con artistry in The Stranger and won’t want to miss this DOC NYC Grand Jury Prize winning film.
"For its multilayered approach to storytelling and challenge to the definition of nonfiction the Viewfinders jury awards The Stranger [the Grand Jury Prize]." - Juror's Statement, DOC NYC Awards Announcement
