Synopsis: Flat Out Lie looks into the wacky world of a conspiracy theorist. The film is a character driven portrait on Darren Nesbit, who spends his time convincing others that the big round earth we all know and love is in fact completely flat. Follow Daz through picturesque landscapes as he explains the myth of gravity, that the land is in fact still, and how his belief has affected his life. Although his pursuit of the truth may sometimes seem hopeless, Daz’s relatively new view on our world has left him feeling liberated.
