Premise: After a man, Adam, played by Richard Armitage, is confronted by "The Stranger," played by Hannah John-Jamen, at a sports club and information about his wife's pregnancy is revealed, Adam confronts his wife, Corinne, played by Dervla Kirwan, right before she goes missing. Adam tries to find his wife, which leads him on a wild goose chase, as authorities also try to find out what happened to Corinne.

Twist: There are a few big twists and reveals in The Stranger. The main one is the connection between the Stranger, also known as Christine. It's revealed that her mother was having an affair with Adam's father, and that they are half-siblings. That's why she never sought anything in return from him. She was actually trying to help him. Her mother was, then, killed by her husband before Adam's father knew that she, Christine, existed.

But, what happened to Corinnne? Well, Tripp, Adam's friend and neighbor, had stole money and was going to blame everything on Corinne. She tries to confront him, but Tripp kills her. Adam finds out Tripp is lying and takes him to the woods out of town where Tripp admits his crimes before Adam kills him.
