    Synopsis: Armaghan is born out of an oath his mother makes to a Pir she meets at a Sufi shrine when she was childless. She promises the Pir who blesses her to let her son ‘walk the Sufi path’ when he grows up. However, shortly after his birth in Pakistan, Armaghan is sent off to the US to live with relatives after his father’s death. After 25 years Armaghan returns to Pakistan to discover a lost culture, a mystic religion, and a family secret. His cousin, Ali, seeks his own calling in the sensual and violent world of Lollywood and becomes engulfed by fantastical musical hallucinations- has he found peace or lost his hold on reality? “Kashf- The Lifting of the Veil” is a story of universal relevance as it explores humanity’s basic questions of who we are, and why we are here. It is the Hero’s Journey as Armaghan embarks on his vision quest, meeting along the way Messengers, Guides and the Master who is waiting for him to awaken to his calling.
