A high profile New York magazine is about to publish a potentially groundbreaking piece. But first, a determined intern is given a big assignment: fact check it. So begins an intensely funny debate between an earnest fact-checker, an eccentric author, and the fair but practical editor attempting to bridge the expanse between painstaking accuracy and impassioned “embellishment.” Based on a true(ish) story, this hyper-current comedy is the ultimate showdown between truth and fiction.
