« Life has taught me that things may not be what they appear to be ».
William Faulkner

Khosro, a pop singer, lives a hectic life with his wife Tina and their son Moez. His life is further complicated when he begins a love affair with a female fan. A terrible event ensues obliging the lovers to each recount their side of the story in pursuit of the truth.


Director’s Statement:
In my world there is crime and prostitution.
In my world there are felonies and lies.
In my world there is hypocrisy and complexity.
There is everything in my world.
There is judgment in my world.
Yet, is everything as it appears?
Is the truth exactly what we see?
Indeed, wherein lies the truth? In sound or in fury?
