Michael is found dead in his apartment, moments after a confrontation that involved his girlfriend Allison, his secret lover Jessie, and Jessie's boyfriend Richard. As Allison, Jessie, and Richard each recount the moments that led to Michael's death, it becomes clear that either somebody is lying, or there is more to this murder than any of them know. False Witness is a short film about the nature of truth, in the style of the classic Akira Kurosawa film Rashomon. But where Rashomon was about subjectivity, in False Witness the truth is objective. It just takes the sum of all of the perspectives involved to understand the full story.
One murder, three conflicting stories. Something doesn't add up.
