ONTARIO, Canada | 97 minutes | 2019

A white lie, in theory, is only a half-lie, a statement that neglects part of the truth with no real intention to cause harm. When Katie parades her pale skin and shaved head through the halls of her university, organizing fundraisers to help her beat an aggressive form of cancer, she’s not being entirely honest. Once confronted, she’s soon dragged into an increasingly dangerous spiral. The two Toronto directors deliver a sophisticated thriller, seemingly ripped from the headlines in an age when our lives are scripted on social media.
