From the creators of the digital series Al Khallat, which amassed over 1.5 billion views and defined a new generation during its 22-episode run, comes an anthology of stories of social deception and trickery set in four unlikely places. In one story, two thieves crash a wedding to save their co-conspirator. In the next, a chef working at a fine-dining restaurant puts the business on the line to save her parents' failing marriage. The next story is set in a morgue, where the friend of a recently deceased man returns to bury something secret given to him by the dead man's wife. The last tale follows a mother searching for her husband while he, in turn, searches for their son in a nightclub. There's always a way out of any situation – and whoever has a trick up his sleeve will use it for their own benefit.
