There comes a time when lies will be exposed and the truth can finally be laid bare. For FBI agent Fox Mulder, that time is now. 
When a friendly, neighbourhood anarchist hacks into the Defense Department's top secret UFO files, Mulder (David Duchovny) finds the first thread of a lie. The thread leads to the desert, and a seemingly alien craft that's laid buried there for years. Mulder goes AWOL to investigate, and his partner, Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) must lie to protect him. Someone in the government wants this secret to stay buried, and they'll do anything to keep Mulder and Scully from discovering it. Including murder. "The X-Files" offers cutting-edge excitement and the best in spine tingling suspense. Each exposed lie drags you deeper into the intrigue - until you can't tell the good guys from the bad.
The Truth is Out There
