‘The Unbelievable Truth’ Movie Summary
The Unbelievable Truth takes place in a small community on Long Island. Josh is back from prison from crimes most in town cannot remember. When he takes a job at Vic’s auto repair shop, his daughter, Audry, falls head-over-heels in love with him. However, Josh rejects her because he’s neither ready for such a relationship, but alos fears Vic’s disapproval. Out of spite, Audry decides not to go to Harvard, and instead moves to New York to be a photographic model. She quickly transitions from modelling in lingerie to full nude portraits.
Of course, Audry’s family disapproves, and they send Josh out to bring her home. He gives up when he finds her living with her agent. On his return home, Josh comes across the daughter of the man he illegally killed in a scuffle. She says that she can testify that he’s innocent. Moreover, Audry is thrilled that Josh has returned to her. She gives all her money she earned posing naked to her father. Once again, she offers herself to Josh when she invites him to see the world with her. This time he requites her love. Unbelievable, isn’t it?
