A story of love, loss and hope, STRANGE BUT TRUE is a family drama that begins in the shadow of tragedy. Laid up with a broken leg, Philip is living with his mother Charlene in upstate New York. It’s been five years since the death of Philip’s brother Ronnie, a devastating blow that has torn the Chase family apart. When they receive a visit from Melissa, Ronnie’s former girlfriend at the time of his death, wounds are re-opened. Heavily pregnant, Melissa is under the belief that her unborn baby belongs to Ronnie.
Leaving Charlene angry and Philip incredulous, Melissa returns home to the cottage she rents from Gail and her husband Bill, a former police officer who now owns the hardware store where Melissa works. When Philip suggests that Melissa’s revelation isn’t impossible, Charlene calls Richard, her ex-husband – and father to Philip and Ronnie – now living in Florida with his new wife. Could it be that Melissa is giving birth to Ronnie’s child? Stranger things have happened. But the truth is altogether more alarming…
