World's first black and white one shot film LOMAD (THE FOX) is a story about a boy and a girl who had an affair in school and reunite via social media after more than a decade.

Drama unfolds with every frame and with every minute the past dominates them and the present grips them to make life changing decisions that alters the dynamics of the whole film. Will they jeopardize their marriage? Will their romance rekindle? Who is this stranger?
