Movie Info

This is the story of a stray in search of a home. Stray begins on an idyllic countryside meadow: a willow tree bending over an azure pond, farm animals grazing on hilly fields, and-suddenly-a young woman, Jennifer, rolls out of a van and away from a male assailant. She stabs him and escapes narrowly into the forest, with nothing but a small pink knapsack. Jennifer lands in the sedate and equally idyllic Chestnut Hill, picking up shifts at a local bar, and finding a friend in Greg, the bar's owner. But Jennifer isn't content to remain friends. She quickly comes between Greg and his fiancée Sarah by falling pregnant and claiming Greg as the father of her child. But just as she is on the brink of becoming a part of a family, her hidden, unspeakable past catches up to her, which spells disaster for all who have come to know her in Chestnut Hill. Is it possible for Jennifer to break the cycle and overcome her violent history, or will she flee again, doomed to remain a wandering stray?

It's an excellent debut from Nena Eskridge.

September 24, 2020 | Rating: 3.0/4.0 | Full Review…

A twisted story of death and deceit that, despite becoming somewhat incoherent during the third act, leaves the viewer with a satisfying aftertaste. [Full review in Spanish]

An entertaining dark thriller and left me interested in what Nena Eskridge will have to offer audiences down the road.

a dark and devastating tale of a broken home and its eternal recurrence for an individual who, having lived there once, has never really been able to leave its malign influence or renegotiate a path to normalcy.
