Sizzle reel for “one like him”

A single moment, twenty years ago, changed Karim’s life and that of his childhood friend Ramzi . Twenty years later, Karim must find a way to tell his first love the truth about what really happened. “one like him” depicts three versions of a conversation on repeat which becomes increasingly surreal until Karim and his best-laid plans spin dangerously out of control.
