In a Putin-esque near-future America, Sam and his friends have been using their free time to work on a tiny, undetectable, utterly reliable lie detector. For Theo, their visionary, it's about creating a world where no one can lie, and the honest will thrive. Just when they finish the prototype, Theo is found dead. Greedy companies, corrupt privatized police and even the president herself will stop at nothing to steal the Truth App. Sam sets his sights on exposing all lies and holding everyone accountable. But he and his friends quickly realize the costs of a BS-free world: the lives of loved ones, and political and economic stability.
