    • Synopsis
    • Having buried their father in Istanbul, Timur (28) and his two brothers, Ediz (36) and Bora (16), return to Ghent, Belgium. Their mother remains in Istanbul. The three brothers resume their lives but need to find a new balance.
      While Ediz plays the dominant father and Bora does silly things with the wrong friends, Timur tries to fulfil his father’s dream: playing the trumpet in a brass band. Sarah, Timur's girlfriend, thinks it’s cool, until she realises how little he seems to notice her now…
      Turquaze presents a disarmingly honest chronicle of a Turkish family’s life in Ghent … Turkish for beginners!
