Contents

It is based on the stage play Disclosure by Helen Collins as presented at La Mama Theatre (Melbourne) during the 2006 Melbourne Fringe Festival. It was shot on location in Melbourne, Australia.

Synopsis: Lies. Betrayal. Blackmail. Murder.

Four different women, each with a well-hidden secret they are coaxed, tricked or forced into revealing. Through a veil of lies all four flirt with the truth as they experience betrayal, ambition, loneliness, pain and anger. But the lies they tell themselves might be the ones that hurt the most.

" … beneath its deceptively simple surface lies an emotionally lacerating psychological whodunit of unusual complexity" - Paul Harris, Film Buffs Forecast

'Not far off being a hidden Australian gem that you should race out to'- Ben McEachen, Empire Magazine

‘Tingling with adult tension!’ - John Flaus, The Melbourne Review
