Synopsis

Taweez tells the story of a lonely old talisman writer in a little afghan village who already gave up hope to receive acknowledgement in life. But after rumors spread in the village, people elevate him to a messiah. While some of the people woreship him, others fear his power. Fear transforms to hate and hate needs a goal. This is a story about the dangers fanatism, superstition and the besetment of otherness.
