One afternoon, after going home from work, Amar, is in the middle of holding a woman, Seruni, hostage in a storage room. Amar is trying to convince Seruni, that she is his wife, and had been in a romantic relationship as husband and wife, for a few years. However, Seruni strongly responds that she has never seen or encountered Amar.
Amar rebuttals her statements and is searching for concrete proofs, of them being together, however, nothing is found. Seruni’s perception stays with her belief. Both of them argued, with each individual elaborating on the “facts” that they believe, whilst also defending the reality and truth that they stand.
