Once upon a time a stranger arrives at a place where the king and his people lived in great peace. He doesn’t look like them. In fact, this stranger is so big and the people so small, that neither can communicate and the uneasiness and hatred that the most harmless of outsiders can engender start a well known chain of events : guards, clueless politicians, the threat of military force. “The Stranger”, again relevant today, is a small story filled with big themes that celebrates in a hopeful way the victory of acceptation and empathy over ignorance and prejudice.
