"Truths and Lies" is a story of two mature, divorced people who meet by the power of fate. Both have been wounded by their past relationships and are overwhelmed with fear. They struggle to open to a new love in the web of misunderstandings, forced truths, and unpredictable lies. A truth can save or kill, and a lie may be a worthy risk to take to survive.
After Vickie goes through a bitter divorce, she is adamant there will never be another man in her life. She is bored, but she is free, and she likes it this way. She simply can't trust men anymore because she sees them all as losers and liars. One evening after a couple glasses of wine, Vickie's girlfriend talks her into going online to see what's out there. Vickie is horrified by what she sees, but before she can delete her brand-new account for good, a picture of one guy attracts her attention. She sends him an "interested" message and sends her life in a new direction. What follows will define the future of these two people who fight to overcome numerous lies and truths to maybe, just maybe, be happy.
