Siblings. Many of us have them. For Cory Webber, her older sister, Sarah, was a fairy princess, and her younger sister Jane- well, she was gullible which made for easy "torture." After Sarah's untimely death, Cory, a single, transient photographer by trade, finds herself holed up with her mother and Jane's family on Cape Cod, learning of the effect her lies had on Jane, as well as of the lies she told herself.

Lies I Told My Little Sister is a SAG feature film scheduled to shoot in Cape Cod, MA and in New Jersey this May-June. Director and St. Pete native William J. Stribling and Producer Jonathan Weisbrod are seeking investors to help finish funding on this SAG Ultra Low Budget feature length film. Come spend an evening with the team, hear a reading of the script, and become a producer by investing in "Lies I Told My Little Sister".
