2 SEY 5
Late night at 2 am, the drunk and disorientated Kabir stops at a petrol pump to get his gas-filled. Things are not working out for him as his ATM card doesn’t adhere to the cash-only requirement and his phone battery dies while he tries to call a friend for help. Moreover, his car also suddenly starts honking while he is at the tuck shop. He is stranded at the pump at this wee hour of the night.
While he is figuring out the bizarre situation, he strangely encounters Zaman, a Sindhi native who mends his engine so the car can reboot its system. These two are now at the sitting area of the pump, conversating over a cigarette. Kabir doesn’t understand Zaman’s language but finds him interesting. Just then a car bumps into the pump. The unconscious driver girl is laid on a Charpai.
Just as Kabir dozes off for a second, he dreams of his mother getting hit by his father and meets his mother in subconsciousness who tells him that everything will be alright. He wakes up alarmed and recalls the guilt of not being able to save his mother. He tells Zaman that he feels he has lost his way. To Kabir’s surprise, here the Sindhi native speaks Urdu and tells him to change his path.
Some goons come hunting the driver girl. Kabir saves her from them, enlightened with the thought that he was not able to save his mother back then, but thankfully today he saved this girl. At 5 in the morning, the girl wakes up from unconsciousness. Kabir tells her that he has informed the car service and she can stay at the pump for a while as it is a safe place. He heads on to follow a new path, liberated.
