Giselle & Jordan's living room.
Jordan and Giselle are a thirty-something couple at the
brink of their five-year wedding anniversary. On New Year’s Eve, Giselle
springs a request on Jordan that gives him pause: She wants them to admit
the lies they’ve told each other over their years together.
On the eve of their anniversary, Jordan puts his lies in the bowl. Giselle peeks and quietly fumes as she puts hers in. On their big day, Jordan reads his lies, and Giselle explodes. After Giselle’s emotions reach a fevered pitch, Jordan admits he made his lies up so she can feel the pain of her sabotages. Jordan then reads Giselle’s lies, which reveal a harsh truth: She wants a divorce. Jordan gives Giselle the requisite kiss and hugs and then leaves.
