The Truth About Lies is a comedy about liars, love, and what happens when people believe what you project about yourself. After losing his job, apartment, and girlfriend on the same day, perpetually immature Gilby lies his way into a temporary position in a company headed by his best friend’s brother-in-law. Things get more complicated when Gilby gets close to his best friend’s sister/his boss’ wife, Rachel.
