Stranger's Arms

One summer, three adolescents stumble across an old unsolved murder case, but when they decide to investigate, they end up facing their own demons.

Three young friends on the brink of adulthood reunite in their home town one summer and decide to spend their days investigating a mysterious unsolved murder that rocked the town in the 80s. Their amateur investigation proves fruitless but nevertheless brings them closer to finding out the truth about themselves, as well as uncovering some disturbing realities about the culture and characters of the town they grew up in.
