Elvira is put into an uncomfortable situation after her boyfriend cheated on her: either she gives in to the ever growing mistrust, or she confronts her demons. To avoid a hysteric downfall of her relationship, she proposes a sophisticated game. She demands an overdose of lies from her boyfriend: if he gets caught, it’s over. If he doesn’t, Elvira offers his acquittal. To provide fair play she joins under the same conditions. But as the game difficulty increases into even more distrust, control and paranoia, Elvira realizes that instead of avoiding the endgame, she just set it off. And if she wants to stop it, no lie and no illusion will help, if they don’t find a common ground.
