When celebrated writer Peg Dunlop returns to Wayford to care for her ailing mother she soon discovers the people in her hometown community don't appreciate the stories she writes, stories that seem to reveal secrets and truths about their own lives. If Truth Be Told echoes the cases of censorship in the late 1970s, when Christian groups and concerned parents attempted to ban books by Alice Munro (Lives of Girls and Women) and Margaret Laurence (The Diviners) from being taught in Ontario high schools. If Truth Be Told, which premiered at Blyth in the summer of 2016, is about the power of words, both spoken and written: how are stories told, what words do we use to fight for what we believe in, and how do we coexist when we have opposing views?
