Frank spends his summer days hopelessly searching for companionship at a popular cruising spot on the shores of a lake in rural France. One day, he meets Michel, an attractive yet darkly mysterious man and falls blindly in love. When a death occurs, Frank and Michel become the primary suspects. STRANGER BY THE LAKE is a graphically explicit erotic thriller that examines the social and moral bounds of instinct and desire, reminiscent of Highsmith or Hitchcock.
