Ahmed, a prominent film director, falls into a deep depression. He loses interest in film and life, and pushes those who love him away. When he meets a burglar who is trying to break into his house, Ahmed has a new hope to finish his last film.
When Zeki Demirkubuz takes the lead in a story about a struggling filmmaker, reality and fiction blur in a refreshing and powerful way. The last entry in his “Tales of Darkness” trilogy, The Waiting Room reflects on the role of the filmmaker, and on the alienating process of creating art.
