Fraud

USA / 2016 / 53 / NR

A family’s home movies document a desperate crime spree and the bid to outrun the consequences. Born from a colossal trove of innocuous uploads to YouTube, Fraud is an impressionistic meta-fiction thriller that reveals one family’s struggle for the American Dream and the mutability of the stories we tell online.
