Plot Synopsis

Based on Stephanie Oakes' book, "The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly," the first season of SACRED LIES is a half-hour scripted series that centers on Minnow Bly, a girl who emerges from the woods after a cult in Montana mysteriously burns to the ground. A violent encounter results in her being sent to juvenile detention, where her only hope for release comes from a forensic psychologist who offers freedom in exchange for her secrets. Minnow soon begins to tell her story to Dr. Wilson about the formation of the cult, the power of the Prophet, their sudden disappearance into the woods 12 years ago, and truth about who cut off her hands. Then, Minnow starts taking classes and panics when she is tasked to try reading, uncovering a gruesome memory from her past surrounding the birth of her baby sister. On Friday, July 27, 2018 at 9pm ET/6pm PT, Facebook Watch released the first three episodes of SACRED LIES.

SACRED LIES: THE SINGING BONES, the second season in the SACRED LIES anthology series, draws inspiration from a story collected from the Brothers Grimm, "The Singing Bone," as real-life murder cases. This installment follows Elsie as she searches for the family she never knew after being abandoned as a child. The search leads her to her father, Peter, an inmate who may be guilty of more than the crimes he's currently incarcerated for and Harper, a telemarketer turned arm-chair detective with an obsessive hobby of searching for unidentified murder victims. SACRED LIES: THE SINGING BONES premiered on Thursday, February 20, 2020 on Facebook Watch.
