"They always want to know what happened to me.’"

When strangers ask Tracey why she needs a walking stick, she invents fantastical and sometimes hilarious stories to explain the reason for her disability. But what is she hiding?

As a connection grows between Tracey and Marty, a regular customer in the dairy where she works, Tracey is challenged to explain the reason for her lies. But it will be a chicken called Hannibal Lecter who helps her to finally face the painful truth.

Lessons Learned from Hannibal Lecter is an adaptation of the short story Lies, which won the Sargeson Prize in 2020.
