Loader Asacha

Le Mensonge

Claude has succeeded in everything in his life: his marriage, his career… Mayor of his town, he aspires to become a senator.

For Lucas, his beloved grandson, life is much less cheerful: his parents are divorcing, he is not comfortable in his own skin, and one day he accuses his grandfather of rape.

Their two lives take a turn, and it will now be a matter of one word against another until the truth finally comes to light, fifteen years later. However, it will not be the truth that everyone had believed.
