Moazzam ma yalla haqeqy

Most of What Follows Is True
A man returns to his neighborhood looking for his brother. He confronts the destruction of his old home, which has become a featureless wasteland. He keeps looking for his brother’s traces, but all he finds is the urban legend about his disappearance.
