Bengaluru International Film Festival - BIFFES

Synopsis

Amine steals a big bag of money and escapes into the hills with the police hot on his trail. Before he is arrested, he digs a grave to bury the cash and disguises it as a modest tomb. Years later, Amine is released from prison and sets off to find his money. In the mean time, a religious shrine has been built directly over the place he buried his cash. But the loot now hidden in a holy place, retrieving it suddenly becomes much more complicated.
