"Gripping and unsettling" - The Queer Review

What begins innocently quickly turns enigmatic as Mark and Jeremy grapple with their insecurities, dark pasts and relationships to love in a time of transactional sex and irresponsibility.

 

A subversive queer parable, LIAR is a stylish, intimate drama that aims to crack open conversations surrounding consent, suicide, ghosting culture and the cost of vulnerability.
