Jocelyn is a ladies’ man and lying comes pretty easily to him. Particularly when it helps win over the woman of the moment. One day he sits down absent-mindedly in an empty wheelchair, and when an attractive nurse happens to come by, it seems the most natural thing in the world to pretend that this is right where he belongs. A comedy about the preconceptions we should have discarded long ago and about a world in which pathological lying is a greater handicap than being confined to a wheelchair.
Successful businessman Jocelyn is an incorrigible ladies’ man whose desire to score with women whatever the cost, along with his penchant for lies and deception, make for a highly explosive combination. When he sits himself down absent-mindedly in a wheelchair one day, and an attractive, unemployed nurse turns up, he has no idea that, this time, his frivolous game is about to go pair-shaped. Not only does he fall in love for the first time in his life, but he’s now compelled to do something that totally goes against the grain: he has to start telling the truth. A comedy about the preconceptions we should have discarded long ago and about a world in which pathological lying is a greater handicap than being confined to a wheelchair.
