In Untrue, a bruised and beaten woman named Mara (Reyes) seeks the help of the police to protect her from her husband. As she narrates how she married a lunatic, her husband, Joachim (played by Xian Lim), also defends himself and tells his own version of the events.
Directed by Sigrid Andrea Bernardo (Mr. & Mrs. Cruz, Ang Huling Cha-cha ni Anita), Untrue had its Philippine run last month.
