Amber is a young British Moslem woman living in Bradford and training to be a lawyer. When her elderly American lover Demi dies, exposure of her modern western lifestyle threatens to ostracize her from her traditional Pakistani community and her vulnerable younger brother and sister. With her former husband looking for a way to betray, control and abuse her as he has already done in the past, she turns to Donald, Demi’s loyal but passive driver for help.
Lies We Tell follows in the tradition of British thrillers such as Mona Lisa with it’s odd-couple paring in a world of corruption and sleaze, but the setting with its underbelly of arranged marriages, sexual exploitation and British Pakistani gangster culture gives it a unique, contemporary focus.
