What is The Strays about?
Based on a true story, The Strays is written and directed by Nathaniel Martello-White. The story begins with the main character, Neve (Ashley Madekwe), appearing totally comfortable with her existence. She lives in a peaceful suburb with her family in a lovely home and gladly teaches at a neighboring private school. That seemingly perfect facade begins to crumble as she notices an unfamiliar man and woman watching her.
Not only does she notice them watching her, but she also notices them appearing in unusual and unexpected places throughout her day-to-day existence. As this continues to happen, Neve begins to feel as if she is going insane. She tries to point this man and lady out to friends and family when she sees them, but they all look at her with disbelief because they haven’t had the same experience she has. Who are they? What do they have to do with Neve? Well, you’ll have to watch the film to find out.
The Strays will premiere on Netflix on February 22, 2023, at 12 am PT/ 3 am ET/ 1.30 pm IST.
