EK is the grim encounter of two persons who question each other's religions and react accordingly. The film's producer, Romi Mehta, told Star Week "There are a lot of flicks made on the Hindu-Muslin riots but the concept of this film was quite unique. EK does not talk about the riots but the equation between a Hindu attitude and a Muslim attitude. So it is about these two people who connect with each other on one thing and how they face problems, rise above religion and solve it. I loved the script and that is why I chose to produce it."

The two main parts are played beautifully and are very well complemented by the two child actors. The short conveys its message of hope and change eloquently as the one character adds "religion is a drug for living people. What religion can a corpse have?".

This could easily be stretched into a fully developed film and that is thanks to the strong director and performances. This is one of the shorts to watch during the [[DC Independent Film Festival]], when it plays on Sunday, February 23rd, in the Seeing Through Women's Eyes block, 2:15-5PM.

This section is one not to miss, as it will also play Halina, and Materica. Ne Te Retourne Pas is another highlight playing a few days before.
