SYNOPSIS

When a controversial story falls apart after the informant backs out, renowned investigative reporter Fabian Groys turns his attention to a toxic waste scandal. Fabian soon suspects that the two stories are connected. Pure coincidence, or is he being manipulated?

Christoph Hochhäusler’s political thriller shines a light on the topical issue of power, lobbyism and the manipulation of the media. THE LIES OF THE VICTORS untangles a cunning web involving the spreading of half-truths, the hunt for a big scandal, and the at-times dubious methods of lobbyists. Hochhäusler takes a look behind the scenes revealing how offstage players influence and control political and journalistic processes. THE LIES OF THE VICTORS is about no less than the integrity of our policymakers and the reliability of the sources of our information.
