INSIGHT Robert Kayes, a dexterous scientist, is performing his research in an Arms and Ammunitions Company and is in search of ‘solid mercury at room temperature’. The character ‘The Mystic’ in the story leads him to unfold the secrets of life and makes Robert envision about the truth and axiom of the world. The story prompts us to look into ourselves and to give a glimpse into our inner self. INSIGHT stands by the idea of unique repetitiveness of the world and the life contained in it. Everything that is happening has happened before, but in another form. Nothing occurs again in the same form. It’s just transforming the premises, people and their lives.

The film covers activism from various angles, with a focus on the processes that may ignite the passion within a person to encourage them to become more active in helping to create the world that they wish to see.
