Adoration
This adult drama revolves around a young man of middle-eastern origin, who is persuaded by his teacher to write a story based on a tragic event, as if it had happened to his family. The fake story is picked up on the internet and things soon spiral out of control. Through flashbacks we examine the motives of the people involved, as well as his teacher's hidden agenda.
