Katie Arneson is faking cancer. A university dance major, Katie’s falsified diagnosis and counterfeit
fundraising have transformed her into a campus celebrity surrounded by the supportive community
she’s always dreamed of: a close-knit group of friends, security in her academic pursuits, and a
caring relationship with her girlfriend.
Dependent upon a bursary for sick students, Katie learns the funding is in jeopardy unless she can
provide copies of her medical records within the week. Enlisting the guidance of several others, she
begins the dangerous process of forging the records. This task is costlier and more complicated than
initially anticipated, and a panicked Katie descends into a spiral of misguided decisions that take
her further and further over the edge.
