Synopsis

One of the most fearless films of the year, “White Lie” is the latest collaboration from Calvin Thomas and Yonah Lewis (Amy George, The Oxbow Cure, Spice It Up).

Katie, a dancer and performer born for the stage, proves equally skilled in perpetuating a charade that has everyone – including legions of crowdfunders supporting her and other cancer-related causes – convinced that she’s bravely battling cancer. But Katie isn’t sick and her girlfriend’s insistence on constantly being at her side and her father’s threats to publicly out her as a fraud are huge obstacles. As her story slowly begins to unravel, she disastrously decides to double down, unable to give up the real-life fantasy world she’s constructed.
