The Lie

Distribution The Lie

Once an idealistic young man with artistic aspirations, Lonnie is stuck and doesn't quite know it. Working at an unfulfilling job, he longs to realize his lifelong dream of becoming a musician. When his wife, Clover, is presented with a career opportunity that could provide them with the stability she craves (but one that goes against their beliefs), Lonnie cannot muster the resolve to endure another day at work, so he tells a lie - a life-altering lie that he cannot take back.
