Two men are on the road: the good-looking Nick, firmly in charge, and his younger brother Sam, a troubled and alienated youth. They have left a ‘troubled’ situation for sure, now looking for a safe place to stay. When they find a cabin in the woods that might finally bring stability and comfort to the men on the run, an undeniable eerie atmosphere still follows them. THE STRANGE ONES is a coming-of-age tale that removes clichés in favor of mystery, exploring the power of the human bond.
