-- synopsys --

Two characters played by same person. One is making the movie another one is the subject.
The subject can only realize the presence of somebody but unable to see anyone.
It is only a camera lens through which the maker can be seen. Soon the subject realises that and also starts to shoot the
maker using a mobile camera. Thus, the difference between the the real and the unreal becomes blur.

The quote appears on a black screen

“There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people.
It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations.
It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.”
― Gautama Buddha
