"Soundman" is a short action film about human trafficking in Kyrgyzstan. The kidnapping of a young Kyrgyz girl is foiled through the intervention of an American working abroad as a soundman who overhears and records the conversation of two kidnappers.

Now faced with the dilemma of whether to leave the fate of the girl in the hands of the local police or to take matters into his own hands, the soundman must decide what action to take.
