Danny, heartbroken plastic surgeon, takes advantage of women with a ruse about having a cheating, abusive wife. It’s an original, complex story that ensures no strings or complications.
However, his lies start to catch up with him when he finds a girl he wants to seriously date. The girl finds his fake wedding ring, and he’s left with a choice. Either he tells her the truth about his twisted con or he complicates the lie. Out of the fear she’d hate him, he complicates the lie. As the story progresses, his lies become more and more complex until he can’t keep up with them anymore.
The Bible says that lies are treacherous and eventually become exposed.
This definitely becomes the case for Danny and Katherine. They become so ensnared by their lies that they must tell the truth to get out of them. When they finally come clean all their burdens melt away and they discover a deeper happiness than they could have ever had otherwise. They also discover their unrequited love.
Danny could have saved a lot of money and grief if he had been honest with Palmer from the start. It is true that she may not have stayed with him, but it would have forced him to reevaluate his approach on women and change him into a better person earlier. However, people sometimes have to undergo ordeals like Danny’s to develop into better people, which he did. He discovered truth about himself, about his friend, and about life.
