Synopsis
Cletus is a man who lies with ease. After he takes a job as a social worker, Cletus begins to care about a little boy named Jorge who has been taken away from his mother, who was wrongly convicted of a crime and jailed. Before he can reunite the boy with his mother, Cletus has to concoct a story to keep the child from being adopted. And while he is working on this, he meets the mother's counselor and falls in love with her.
