Stephanie and Mike are a couple who think they have it figured out. He’s an accountant moving up in his firm, and she is an aspiring writer who has recently quit her day job to pursue writing full time. Mike wants to help with her novel in any and every way he can. But Stephanie won’t let him read a single page of her rough draft- she wants to keep it a surprise.  After a year of writing, submitting, edits, and dealing with her new agent, Dan, the book is finally ready to be published. Mike excitedly reads it only to find out it’s about his childhood growing up and eventually escaping from a cult. As the buzz for Stephanie’s book grows, so does the danger of Mike’s past finally coming back for him. 

(Non)Fictionexamines the line between fact and fiction. When does an artist have a right to a story? And ultimately, who does the story belong to – the person who told it, or the person who lived it?
