The Game Of True and False

Tommy and Lia, and Ronny and Dana are two married couples living in Tel Aviv who meet to celebrate Dana’s 29th birthday and her new role in a television drama.Tensions rise when Tommy suggests they play the game of True and False.  What seemed at the beginning of the evening as a harmless party game quickly becomes destructive as personal secrets come out. Each of the sentences is a confession of adultery, whether truthful or not, and each of the participants uses the game to his or her own manipulative needs. By the end of the evening, the biggest secret is revealed, the one after which, nothing will ever be the same again. This evening will change the lives of all four people, but even after the evening is over, they won’t ever know for sure, what was true and what was a lie.
