  • Synopsis

    Ollie feels his seemingly comfortable life is a lie, that the world is saturated with lies - families lie, politicians lie, t.v. lies, movies lie - but there is one exciting reality: CCTV. By hacking into a security CCTV system Ollie can see the casual brutalities of his peers, the nightclub kickings, the random injuries, the scores paid off. No lies ... or are there? Ronan Kelly was killed outside the Angelic Triptych nightclub - how is it that nobody is to blame?
