Film Concept and Setting

“The Rest Room” narrates the intense story of a group of strangers who find themselves inadvertently trapped in a restroom during a power outage in a large, cosmopolitan Dubai shopping mall. The film explores their collective struggle for survival, both physically and emotionally, as they face not just the darkness around them but also the personal shadows that emerge.

Our aim is to create a film that not only entertains but also resonates deeply with diverse audiences,” Ali commented. The film’s direction focuses on high emotional stakes and visual storytelling that highlights both the urban landscape and the intimate human experiences within it.

The production is committed to casting actors from various backgrounds to portray the city’s global citizenry authentically. This approach not only enriches the film’s narrative but also aligns with the studio’s mission to bridge cultural divides through cinema.

Production Timeline and Expectations

Pre-production is meticulously planned to commence in September 2024, with a comprehensive schedule that includes finalizing the cast, securing locations, and aligning technical requirements to ensure a seamless production phase.
