In this white knuckle ride of a film we meet our anti-hero right in the thick of it. Katie Arneson is faking cancer. A university dance major, she has falsified her diagnosis in order to raise funds for her alleged illness. Her fundraising has transformed her into a campus celebrity and social media darling. Supported by a close-knit group of friends and a caring relationship with her girlfriend, Katie is selling the lie. However when she learns that her fundraising might be in jeopardy unless she produces her medical records, her well plotted lie begins to unravel. Gripping from the first minute to the last, White Lie is a compelling drama about a conflicted and complicated young woman that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
