A romantic and contemplative Easter weekend in the country – that's how Lucy and Ole are imagining their spring holidays.

What they don’t know about each other: each of them is having an affair. And on top of that: their respective lovers have chosen this very weekend to leave their partners and to give Ole and Lucy a surprise appearance at their doorstep. This blows the whistle for a dazzling round robin of "the tougher you lie, the more you'll be loved".

Chaos, entanglements, misunderstandings and, most of all, lies are now in play. While truth counts little on this weekend, the characters´ true emotions and desires are breaking through in the songs they can't help singing.

THE LAST LIE is a wild screwball comedy musical about love, with a generous score, philosophical plumbers, and more than a kernel of truth in it.

Jonas Grosch was born 1981 in Freiburg. After studies of Philosophy and Comparative Literature in Giessen, he graduated from the "Konrad Wolf" University of Film and Television in Potsdam-Babelsberg in 2009 with the feature film RESIST! INTERN REBELLION (RÉSISTE – AUFSTAND DER PRAKTIKANTEN), which he wrote and directed. THE LAST LIE, his second feature film as writer/director which he also financed independently without subsidies or TV-participation, had a cinema run and was sold to German pubcaster ZDF. His other films include: WHITE MAN WITH BLACK BREAD (doc, 2007), A SILENT ROCKUMENTARY (doc, 2012), and BESTFRIENDS (BESTEFREUNDE, 2014, in co-direction with Carlos Val).
