Overview

A simple lie yields deadly consequences in writer/director Joe Ahearne's drama about two parents who lie about their religion to get their daughter into a high performing Catholic school. Ten year-old Lucy has just witnessed a deadly knife attack at school, and now her parents Stewart (Christopher Eccleston) and Alison (Susannah Harker) are desperate to ensure her safety. If they could only get Lucy into a respected Catholic school, Stewart and Alison could finally rest easy, but in order for that to happen they will have to lie about their religion. At first it seemed like a simple deception, but soon this little white lie will spiral into a deadly cycle of fraud, blackmail, and murder. In order to prepare for an intimidating interview with the school's tough principal (Lesley Manville), Stuart and Alison enlist the aid of a priest (David Warner) who's willing to verify their story and give young Lucy a quick lesson in Catholicism. But this crucial bit of help has a high price, and by the time Stewart discovers the priest's dark secret it may already be too late.
