Synopsis

A psychological thriller set in a world of hate crime, international espionage and extreme rock climbing, Lie Detector tells the story of David Wellman, an FBI special agent whose work in the Hate Crime Unit is suddenly disrupted by a near-fatal car accident. When his injuries and complex recovery give rise to a unique ability to detect deception, David's resulting paranoia devastates his family and jeopardizes his work as an agent. This epic, personal journey underscores themes of love and redemption, and takes David from the confusing world of his aphasia-stricken mind to the terrifying vertical walls of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley.

Director's Statement

Our film was based on a study conducted several years ago regarding patients with aphasia resulting from head injury or stroke. Approximately 70% of these patients gained the ability to detect deception in people they interacted with, the seeming result of a fierce desire to understand the spoken word again. Keen observation of body language and other factors led to this ability as the patients regained speech. I shared the results of this study with my writing partner Tim Ryerse and we both agreed it would make a fascinating narrative film. We of course pushed the envelope with our storyline, giving our central character more than the study's 70% ability. But we also paid close attention to the medical science to give our film the authenticity it needed to connect with audiences. Lie Detector is a personal journey of self-exploration and coming to terms with what essentially becomes, for character David Wellman, a super power. And since our culture is ever fascinated with lies and the people who tell them, future story possibilities are nearly endless.
