Storyline

Framed within a series of strange campfire tales, THE GOOD LIE tells the story of Cullen, a young college student. Upon the sudden death of his mother, he discovers that he is the product of a violent rape, which put his young mother in critical condition, and her attacker - a lifelong criminal named Rose - in prison. Cullen goes to the prison to confront the man, and is shocked to hear that Rose was released the previous year. Cullen resolves to track down his sinister biological father, and learns that the truth can be far more bizarre than anything told around a campfire... Written by Filmoption International
