One night in his nearly empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam (Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbor, Harry (Paul Mescal). Both men feel isolated and are searching for a connection. As a relationship develops between them, Adam is haunted by memories of the past and finds himself drawn back to the suburban town where he grew up, and the childhood home where his parents appear to be living, just as they did on the day they died, 30 years earlier…

In the search for an authentic connection, love and loss take on different forms, and even in the supernatural, All of Us Strangers remains fundamentally human. Irish heartthrobs Andrew Scott and Paul "Aftersun" Mescal each prove why they deserve their passionate fan base.
