Plot – While doing his job, the lawyer Fletcher Reed follows the rule of giving less importance to the facts and much more to the way they are presented. Everything seems to be relative and the truth can be easily changed from a moment to another thanks to great rhetorical skills. In this way, Fletcher is successful and his clients compete against each other to get to him. However, it isn’t the same for what concerns his family: he’s divorced, his wife is considering to marry another man and even if Fletcher is really close to his son Max, he regularly misses all the promised gatherings. On his birthday, Max wishes that his dad could tell the truth for just one day. The wish comes true and suddenly Fletcher is completely out of control and says phrases he would never ever pronounce.
