The Real Story

Laurie, early twenties and newly arrived in Boston from a small Oregon town has just spent her first night with her brother and his wife in the city's South End. Her brother Hank, views his little sister as too young and naive for the big city, and can't resist teasing her with an outlandish story that keeps changing shape. He is aided in his efforts by his wife Carol until Laurie manages to turn the tables on both of them in a surprising turn of cleverness and pluck.
