Background Boston financial  district at night



Sometimes the only way to survive, is to lie

Nina Kasai is hiding dangerous secrets. She keeps them buried by living the picture-perfect life she's constructed: a thriving career as a business executive, a beautiful home in a posh Boston suburb, and a handsome, successful husband. Everything is as it should be, except...

It all begins to unravel when Nina’s father, the powerful businessman and philanthropist, Phillip Copeland, asks her to campaign on his behalf in his bid to become Governor. But Nina stubbornly refuses. Voters don’t know the real Phillip: the liar, the cheater, the unconscionable sociopath. 

Some secrets should stay buried but Phillip is determined to exact revenge for what he sees as an unforgivable betrayal, leaving Nina no choice but to fight back. When she exposes the shocking truth about her father’s crimes—the reason she left home as a teenager and never looked back—will a stunned jury believe her? Or will she be dismissed as a cunning manipulator determined to take down an innocent man?
