- Dennis Harvey, Variety
Official Selection - 2015 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival


A documentary feature film that explores how and why people lie. The film is anchored in behavioral experiments that measure our propensity to lie – sometimes even unknowingly. On a more personal level, people share on camera the true stories of lies they’ve told - from little white lies to devastating deceits. Experts examine the reasons behind out behavior and the implications of our dishonesty. Behavioral scientist Dan Ariely brings these elements together and guides us in discovering the complicated truths about lies.
