In turns funny, disturbing, and glisteningly sensual, small lies, Big Truth is a tape about love, relationships, and the joy and banality of sex in the late 20th Century. It also touches on such issues as morality, voyeurism, nature vs. culture, and power, as eight people read fragments from the testimony of William Jefferson Clinton and Monica S. Lewinsky, as published in the Starr Report.

These four couples include an older man and a younger woman (Bill Raymond and Tracy Leipold), an older woman and a younger man (Joan Jonas and Ken Kobland), an older man and a younger man (Rodney Evans and David Watson), a younger woman and an older woman (Simin Farkhondeh and Kathy High).
