KHAEMAE MEIN MATT JHANKAIN (Don’t Peek Into the Tent)

Welcome to the surreal and magical world of ‘Khaemae Mein Mutt Jhankhain’ (Don’t Peek Into The Tent). In a small, quiet village cut off from the rest of civilization, a circus accidentally lands into town. Steeped in superstition, the villagers sit around the fire at night telling tales of a magical fairy that has descended with the circus. ShanoKhanzada, a local landlord, observes as the villagers fall into a spell-like state after watching the alleged fairy's mesmerizing trapeze act. Shano, unmoved by all the gullible romantics surrounding him, decides to investigate himself. As he treads the fine line between myth and reality, nothing can prepare him for the truth he uncovers.
