White Liars depicts a fateful encounter between a down and out fortune teller, a rock musician and his agent. The agent bribes Baroness Lemberg to fake some hocus pocus over a crystal ball, ostensibly to discourage the musician from pursuing his girlfriend. The trickery entangles each of them in a dense web of mendacity.
