Short Term 12 is the name of the group home for troubled teenagers, where the majority of the movie's story takes place.

Who killed Marcus' fish?

The stories that Mason tells about former residents of the foster care facility seem to be based on truth because some of his co-workers personally knew those former residents. But the punchlines of his stories don't involve Mason's co-workers (so they can't confirm them) and always sound a bit too sensational to be true.

So the question arises: were those stories true, or were they just a way for Mason to uplift the mood among his co-workers and residents?
