Stranger Says: In a story that is constantly mutating, director Simon Chung mines the territory between gay and straight, love and obsession. After 10 years apart, one friend travels to Australia to catch up with the other. If Jamie has moved on with his life, Kevin had a breakdown from which he is still recovering. From out of the blue, he relocates to Hong Kong where he insinuates himself into Jamie’s life—staying at his apartment, working at his tutorial center, and hanging out with his girlfriend. When a student pursues one of the men, long-buried secrets rise to the surface, forcing a reckoning with the past.
