During his father’s funeral, Firaz waits for a loved one. The young girl, who dreams of changing her life, must take care of her grandfather. His daily life is an increasingly heavy burden. During the ceremony, while everyone offers their condolences, there is no food…



“The Tamed is built upon a childhood memory of a funeral. This memory is marked by food, gossip, sadness, and the strange enthusiasm of being together. I attempt to reconstruct a memory within a fictional world with a documentary aesthetic.”
