    Plot: For as long as she could remember, Dakota Skye has been cursed with a super power. She has the ability to see the truth in any lie she hears. From small, harmless white lies, to the more devious kind, they have come from the people that she should trust the most; her family, friends and teachers. These lies have snowballed, leading to her becoming bitter and apathetic towards the world around her. Now seventeen, Dakota just watches the world happen around her, unmotivated to join it. She has a boyfriend who plays in a semi-popular local rock band and her best friend from childhood, but finds little joy in her own life. One day, Jonah comes into town. It only takes a few days before Dakota notices something about him that sets him apart from the other people in her life. He doesn't lie. Through her friendship with Jonah, her eyes are opened to the world around her and she sees that there is something out there more than all the lies. There is a possibility of something different… something better. If only he wasn't her boyfriend's best friend. Now she must make a choice. Can she go back to the apathy that has dictated her life, ignoring something potentially amazing? Can she take the leap into the unknown with Jonah, ignoring all the repercussions that may come from that decision? Is he really the person that she thinks he is and wants him to be? The only thing that becomes clear is that Dakota can no longer be a spectator in her own life. She has to look at her life as it was, is and could be and make a choice for the first time.

    Movie Quotes: Alberta: How do you get them do to what you want?
    Celene: Don't give them a choice. Believe in something strongly enough, even if it's total bullshit, so will everyone around you.

    Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    Vot i skazochke konets, (And here's the ending to this little jest,) a kto smotrel, tot Molodets!!! (and those who watched, they're the Best!!!)

    Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Continuity: When Alberta (Leelee Sobieski) takes a yogurt from the shelves in the supermarket where she works, an employee says she should pay for it first. He takes the yogurt from Alberta's hand. But in the next shot the employee walks away and the yogurt is magically back in Alberta's hand again.

    Trivia: There are 9 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Director Christopher Summa received special recognition at the Brooklyn Film Festival for his unique union of Italian-American and African-American themes in the film.
    • The championship 4 by 400 meter track relay race that the characters run in was filmed using an actual track meet in New York city. Unable to get the proper filming permits necessary the producers secretly entered the actors as a new team called “Gonzaga”. Unbeknownst to the track officials, there were two 16mm film cameras, one video camera, and one still photographer set in place around the indoor arena. Although the actors looked great in their uniforms, they were lapped twice and finished dead last. The films editing portrays an amazingly different scenario.
    • All the characters in the film attend Gonzaga College in New York. This is a fictional Jesuit College that was supposed to be located in the Bronx, NY. Symbolically, Aloysius Gonzaga is the Patron Saint of Youth, he died in his early 20's.
