Based in true facts, “LIES” is a passionate story of seduction, lies and betrayal. Nothing ever threatened the life of lies of Ricardo Caicedo, a successful business man, until the tragic night when a bomb exploded in the prestigious social club of El Nogal.
From then on, everything collapses in the life of Ricardo, who must now elaborate a sophisticated and intricate lie for his wife, to make her believe that he was in that club at a business meeting and not with his lover Manuela in meeting of another kind.
Like in a snowball effect, Ricardo´s false tale keeps growing and growing until it finally goes out of control. For him it becomes a tragedy; for the viewer becomes series of events totally out of the ordinary, where the only possible resolution is to reveal the awful truth.
