A popular undergrad faking cancer struggles to maintain her secret.
Directed with an assurance that suffuses every frame, the latest feature from Calvin Thomas and Yonah Lewis (Amy George, The Oxbow Cure, Spice It Up) centres on Katie (Kacey Rohl), a young woman who has become a literal poster child on her university campus: recently diagnosed with cancer, she's the focal point of an online funding campaign for both herself and other cancer-related causes. The only problem is, it's all built on a lie: Katie isn't sick, and never has been. And as her story slowly begins to unravel, she disastrously decides to double down, unable to give up the real-life fantasy world she's constructed for herself.
