Tamata: offerings and tributes given to gods or saints in exchange for grace, a favour, or the fulfilment of a wish.
Alone, feeling defeated, and having lost their faith, six men search for something to believe in. In a timeless and lonely landscape, a place where memory becomes a nightmare and the present a deep and painful wound, they struggle violently but quietly to rediscover their body, their truth, their light. Their bodies fall, hug, tremble, stay still, breathe, shake, explode, sway, fight, dance, crave, hope, promise, and sacrifice. Moments and encounters come and go, some lost forever into the dark, leaving them alone again, confronted with their passions, their desires, and their fears. Always confronted with a single foe, themselves.
A dark, pagan, and poetic journey in search of identity, the need for tenderness, the sense of belonging somewhere, belonging to someone, coexistence. A melancholic journey, hidden behind shadows and darkness, but filled with desires, longing, rage, fragments of memory, and sudden bursts of light. A look into the hidden desires and untold stories of the tender male soul.
