Toz (Dust) presents vignettes from an extraordinary but imperfect life that a couple created for themselves. A violent event, incomprehension, and acceptance are among the micro-stories that the film presents. The film’s narrative stems not from grand-events and their beginnings or endings, but from these small memories. As a result, we find ourselves in a dust cloud in which Osi and her lover struggle.
