Synopsis

Neurotic Leila is pursued by Howard, a man who is as convinced Leila loves him as he is obsessed with her.  Howard is equally convinced that his life is a musical, and neither Leila nor Darcy, the cop she enlists to rid herself of an increasingly malevolent pest, can help singing along with him.  Stalker is a dark, romantic, comedy-thriller…with music.
