Synopsis

The Riddle is an absurd film noir drama.

Bizarrely, a nun, an imam, a rabbi and a Marxist end up in a prostitute's cellar confronted with the task of cleaning her soul! But while they all manage to misinterpret the situation, an innocent, open minded child gets to deliver the ultimate solution with a twist.

The Riddle is a deliberate interplay of cliches and iconic characters and it throws out questions around knowledge, innocence and ideology. Ultimately 'The Riddle' in question is the quest for Peace in this bizarre absurd world.
