A sudden family tragedy and his girlfriend’s unexpected announcement put Rehan Ahmed into a downward spiral that forces him to choose between reality and revenge in this character-driven action short.
The sudden, tragic death of Rehan Ahmed’s brother collides with his girlfriend’s unexpected pregnancy announcement, pulling him into a downward spiral of uncertainty.

As the couple quickly go from average University students to fugitives, the culminating moment sees Rehan a victim of inevitable misunderstanding between cultures, lovers, and simple human nature.
