Production company: Blumhouse Productions
Canadian distributor:

A Hitchcock-style thriller, the Canada-U.S. co-production The Lie (aka Between Earth and Sky) begins in teen tribulations any parent might recognize, but tightens into a spiral of deceit and desperation triggered by that purest of motives — the need to look after your child. Kayla (Joey King) is a bundle of nerves and frustration as she drives with her parents Jay (Peter Sarsgaard) and Rebecca (Mireille Enos) to a ballet retreat. It’s winter, so when they spot Kayla’s friend waiting for a ride at the side of the road, they pick her up. But something happens between the two girls during a rest stop near a river. When the parents come to get them, the friend is gone and Kayla is freaking out. Kayla says pushing her friend into the freezing water was an accident. But murder is murder. At first Jay and Rebecca want to do the right thing, but Rebecca is a lawyer and knows they’re already implicated. As the weight of losing everything descends, these two parents, estranged for years, begin to do their dangerous work together.
