The title of this short story says it all. MeToo was the movement launched by women throughout the country to criticise men and force them to do their own work.
In this short film METOO, the story revolves around a famous actor, singer and producer Ali Fakhar who invites an struggling artist Faiza Rafi over a cup of coffee. They both meet at a cafe and discuss their upcoming projects.
After some time, the struggling artist observes it would be difficult make her name in the industry as the competition was tough. She decides to take a shortcut. And the shortcut is her ideal friend Ali Fakhar, the same actor who paid for her coffee.
She offers Ali to marry her and announce it on the media. The actor tells her that he is already married and it is not possible to have another marriage. He considers her just a friend and nothing more. Faiza tells him that he has to do it or else she would level serious allegations of harassment against him. Ali tells her that he won’t be blackmailed by her.
Faiza, while feeling the resistance by Ali, puts four options in front of the actor. She tells him that either he has to marry her, or he will give her 10 million. As for the third option, Faiza will file a case against Ali, blaming him for the harassment in the name of giving him a project. She however doesn’t reveal what her fourth option will be.
Ali is too much worried now. He tells everything to his legal counsel and asks about the solution. The counsel assures him that if she files a case against him, he will fight his case and win for him. He shouldn’t be worried.
On the other hand, Faiza knows Ali won’t accept his proposal. She goes for the fourth option.
Ali is watching the TV. Suddenly a news emerges that says the celebrated actor Ali Fakhar harasses women in the name of giving them fame. Ali is shocked to see the news. His counsel calls him and tells him not to worry about anything. He will settle the issue and prove him not guilty.
Ali seems disappointed and says that even if he is proven not guilty, he will lose his respect in the industry and his character won’t be considered as same anymore.
