Synopsis

Sally has a problem. Her dad is the master of tall tales and Sally is finding it increasingly difficult to tell what is real and what is made up. He keeps spinning yarn about the time when he was a boy, how he slept in a cardboard box, walked 14 km to school … barefoot …, not to mention the fact that he only got one orange for Christmas. But look, it did him no harm at all!

Sally does not know what to believe – but one day she gets an idea. An idea about how to find out the truth…
