Little White Lie

Rated NR 66 min. 2014

What defines our identity, our family of origin or the family that raises us? How do we come to terms with the sins and mistakes of our parents? Director Lacey Schwartz discovers that answering those questions means understanding her parents' own stories as well as her own. She pieces together her family history and the story of her dual identity using home videos, archival footage, interviews, and episodes from her own life. Little White Lie is a personal documentary about the legacy of family secrets, denial, and redemption.
