In this intriguing and entertaining thriller, Khalid Youssef tells the story of a young, rich man who kills his wife and his brother when he finds them in bed together. After he evades prosecution we start to wonder whether the killings were really spontaneous or if perhaps he had plotted everything in advance to get rid of both of them. Investigations proved his suspension false and that he created the incident to claim that they had an affair to get back his share of his father’s inheritance The film is told from shifting perspectives in the style of Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon, including those of the hero, his mistress and a police detective investigating the case. The film moves around the murders cleverly, in a manner as unconventional and exciting as the story itself. Very convincing characters are involved in a game that requires a hefty dose of imagination from the audience.
