Synopsis: 
Simon and Maggie are on their first date together. Simon finds Maggie charming, attractive and intelligent, but with one flaw – she’s a pathological liar. Simon agrees to go home with her and from there things go downhill. With Maggie’s lies growing more elaborate, featuring stories of orphaned childhoods, a murdered boyfriend, and a body in the basement, Simon is finding the lines between reality and fiction beginning to blur. As Simon fears his life might be in danger, his plans of getting the girl are soon replaced with plans of just getting out. But Maggie has other ideas. Whether or not this is the perfect date or a disaster waiting to happen, sparks are sure to fly.
