Trailer: Introducing One Strange Thing
152
One Strange Thing digs deep into the forgotten experiences of everyday Americans... with a single unexplainable element: a house that bleeds, or a lost ring that turns up on another continent, or a mysterious hum. This isn’t true crime, or tall tale, or dry history. It’s whimsy — with a hint of edge. Real stories of entirely normal people, save for one strange thing.
