LEN is a film that examines issues of deception, documentary ethics and criminal illness.
An ersatz interview with an ex-convict, vindicated in a trial, reveals a complicated web of lies and family tragedy.

The story centers around an interview with a man named LEN who has personally requested the presence of a documentary student filmmaker for a confession. His daughter, Elizabeth, had suffered from a "multiple personality disorder" and died. A personality named, "Phylis" killed her secondary personality named, "Elizabeth" in an effort to keep their father, and a family secret, from exposure. The use of neo-realism, as cinematic aesthetic, is prevalent in this work, as the course to get to the greatest truth is at stake.
