Synopsis

An investigator from the War Crimes Commission travels to Connecticut to find an infamous Nazi.

Dove Review

“The Stranger” is a well-done mystery, focusing on a man who arrives in town carrying a secret that none of the town people would ever have believed. The plot involves a murder, as well as World War II and the Holocaust.

The movie is well-acted and features a devious mastermind plan. We are awarding this film our Dove Family-Approved Seal for ages 12-plus. This stranger is someone you don’t want to get to know better!
