Ajyal Competition - Ajyal Film Festival 2022
A shy teenager in search of recognition, a man ready to do anything to win a car, and a senior executive at the end of his career who wants to prove to himself that he’s still got it. Three hapless characters who are all hurtling towards equally unexpected fates in the pursuit of victory. ‘Fairplay’ is a darkly comedic short about the absurdity of peer pressure and one-upmanship.
