Could you push the envelope of cult personality and distortion of media, or rather enfold it? This is a game of confidence. What if you couldn't tell the difference between what was real and what was not? What if you could get away with something and everyone seemingly believed you? Sometimes it doesn't matter who you are, it's who they think you are.
