Storyline

Katie Arneson is faking cancer. A university dance major, Katie's falsified diagnosis and counterfeit fundraising have transformed her into a campus celebrity surrounded by the supportive community she's always dreamed of: a close-knit group of friends, security in her academic pursuits, and a caring relationship with her girlfriend. Dependent upon a bursary for sick students to maintain her ruse, Katie learns the funding is in jeopardy unless she can provide copies of her medical records within the week.

Hanging in Jennifer's bedroom is a poster advertising "Quilted Cotton Pads - 99¢." The style of the sign makes it clear that it's from an old Toronto discount store called Honest Ed's. See more »

Quotes

Katie Arneson: You think I chose this? People look at me and stare and avoid me. Nobody would choose this. We spend so much time together, how could I fake the tests and the chemo and everything?
