"Remembering Turinam" tells the tale of Salai, a scholar-monk who lives in Turinam, a colonized territory occupied by the Rytari Republic. Salai returns to his childhood home to reconcile with his dying grandfather, who fought in defense of Turinam during the Rytari invasion many decades ago. He comes with turbulent questions — he leaves with a mission.
