    • Synopsis
    • Islamabad, Pakistan. Hasan spends his time cruising around town with old school buddies Sherry and Saad. What he really wishes he was doing was spending more time with secret crush Aisha and practising with his new video camera. Hasan dreams of becoming a filmmaker.
      Day and night, these guys are found hanging out at cafes, smoking shisha pipes, browsing video stores, crashing house parties and staring at high school girls.
      It is only when Aisha confesses her plan to leave the country to be with another guy, that Hasan is forced into facing up to his own state of inertia.
      But his flashy friend Sherry has secret debts that have come back to haunt him. Mani and his boys give him an ultimatum that brings Sherry to his friend’s door for help.
      With troubles everywhere, Hasan will realise that there is no easy escape for anyone from this world.
