Storyline

An impulsive sexual encounter from her past haunts Amy, an otherwise seemingly normal young woman with a bright future and nice-guy fiancé. But her fiancé has suggested that the couple be completely honest and tell each other everything! When Amy finally relents, encouraged to tell the truth by her coworker and mother (neither of whom really knows what she has to disclose), and reveals her secret, all hell breaks loose. Written by Geoffrey Gilmore, Sundance Film Festival Director

To avoid lying, just have a code of silence like everyone else. It seems that there is no such thing as a secret if more then one person knows! ...... so stop comparing yours! This movie explains why ' Thou shall not lie' didn't appear anywhere near the top ten commandments. Film Noir with a happy ending. This is not a "laugh out loud comedy" It is way better so.............Call it........ "A laugh in silence comedy" Not the most common movie premise since the opening scene made me realize that it was not a remake of Old Yeller. My applause to Sundance for exposing this for its genius interpretation of "If you judge people, you have no time to love them"
