The Lie

USA/English (82 mins)

Canadian Premiere - Joshua Leonard in attendance.

The Lie is a candid portrait of a young idealistic couple forced to settle down after the birth of their baby. Miserable at an unfulfilling job, Lonnie decides he needs time off, so he calls in sick. When his abusive boss responds by demanding he show up or get fired, Lonnie tells a shocking lie to justify his absence"and once the lie is out, there is no taking it back. It is only a matter of time before the grenade Lonnie has thrown at his life explodes, and he is pushed to figure out who he is, what he wants, and, just maybe, what it means to be a father.
