The score plays with lightness and darkness. Dark ominous yet ambiguous synth drones welcome the audience into this story. Perry White had directed Tom and Daisy to lead the audience down the garden path with this score and to lead us into thinking something's up that we should be concerned about. 

Occasionally, when Mahmoud has some real soul-searching moments, or during prayer, his ascending four note motif is introduced. He is conflicted and the motif again remains ambiguous up until the final cue where the darkness is replaced with more of a lighter tone that includes a women's humming choir accompanied by orchestral strings and woodwinds
