Pete Ohs, USA 2021, 78’
International premiere
Audience award nominated film. Vote after the screening.

Sarah (Stephanie Hunt, co-writer) gets a new name, a new home, bathroom and bedroom. She is to avoid talking to other people and, as the official sitting opposite her points out, just try not to be who she is. Certainly, and under no circumstances, is she to mention Youngstown, Ohio. Sarah, whose family history has been complicated, is part of the witness protection program. However, she has a serious problem - she is completely unable to lie or even remember her new name. Fortunately, in Youngstown, to which she immediately returns, she quickly meets an outspoken crook who "forgot" to return the car after a test drive and promises to teach her to cheat and use crutches convincingly. In his "microscopic" movie Peter Ohs shows some inept cheats who could learn a lot from Ryan and Tatum O'Neal from Paper Moon, surprised to learn that the more they lie, the more they learn about themselves. 

Audience award nominated film. Please pick up a voting card on entering the screening and tear in a place marking your opinion and throw it into an assigned box after the screening (cards and boxes will be available at the theaters). The filmmakers have a chance of winning $10,000.
