The fifth episode of Facebook Watch’s new drama series, Sacred Lies, from Executive Producers Raelle Tucker and Scott Winant, and produced by Blumhouse Television, is now available to watch on the Sacred Lies show page. The drama series is based on the classic Grimm Brothers tale The Handless Maiden and Stephanie Oakes’ novel The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly and follows the journey of a handless teen who escapes from a cult and finds herself in juvenile detention, suspected of knowing who killed her cult leader.
Love is in the air in Sacred Lies’ fifth instalment, with Valentine’s day setting the tone at the detention center, forcing Minnow, played by Elena Kampouris (My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, Before I Fall, Men) to relive memories of her forbidden love from the woods, as Dr. Wilson, played by Kevin Carroll (The Leftovers, Being John Malkovich, Lucifer) uncovers more of the mystery behind her escape from the cult. At the same time, as Angel, played by Kiana Madeira (Taken, Dark Matter), and Minnow’s friendship deepens, they both experience uncomfortable realities of their immediate environment. Sneak peaks and community discussion surrounding the plot’s development, characters and their stories are posted each week to the Sacred Lies show page.
