Rules of lies (dir. by Robert Sedláček) CZ 2006, 119 min.35mm print with English subtitles

Twelve recovering drug addicts attempt to clean themselves up at a makeshift rehab center – a remote farmhouse in the middle of the countryside. They have committed every sin imaginable: they have lied, stolen, cheated, thought only of themselves, and one has even murdered. What should be long forgotten has returned, and a bomb is ticking beneath the community. Will the truth come out? If the truth is what people remember…. They fall in love and forgive, and seek out their better selves with only each other to rely on. But can a person completely stop lying and still survive among other humans?
