Synopsis

We’re all hiding something. Repressed emotions. Dark secrets. We lie to the world to keep ourselves safe. But there’s always a chance our deceptions will unravel. The truth will be laid bare. But in the meantime we’ll keep it all in, those secrets and lies all bubbling under the surface. A collection of films in which people lie to each other – and sometimes themselves – in order to keep living. But if those lies are revealed, the consequences could be devastating. Or in some cases, liberating.
