Life and the Art of Lying
Charlie, a bubbly queer artist, heads into a new year surrounded by her closest friends. But her plans for carefree fun are dashed when she is suddenly confronted with a health crisis. Not wanting to burden those she loves with her news, Charlie lies repeatedly to cover up the severity of her situation. With no easy cures at hand, Charlie turns to her medical doctor – Dr. Simone - and chooses to secretly pursue a renegade solution for her illness. As Charlie's feelings for her best friend Mara grow stronger, the two women are both forced to confront the painful truths they have been avoiding.
