The short film has a black and white theme to it. In the first scene, the audience is made known to a devil busy laughing and fidgeting about with a piece of clothing.


The cinematic piece tells the tale of a one-to-one conversation between Adam and the snake. The snake is trying very hard to entice the protagonist to eat the fruit from the tree of life. She tries to lure him into the trap by playing the immortality card. While Adam also puts forward a strong argument. It makes convincing him a difficult task for the beautiful snake.


The makers of the short film have kept the conclusion of the movie in an open-ended format. They have decided to give the viewers a chance to find the answer to whether Adam could resist the urge to eat the fruit offered to him by the snake.

The cast and crew of the film have highlighted a beautiful life lesson through a well-constructed narrative. The setting of the film, the character sketch and costumes of both the characters is very apt.

The only weakness I could find was that the dialogues and the visuals didn't match in some of the scenes during the discussion between the two central characters.
