OMAR – AN INCREDIBLE LOVE STORY
Omar, a young baker turned freedom fighter, is accustomed to dodging surveillance bullets to cross the separation wall to visit his secret love Nadia. But occupied Palestine knows neither simple love nor clear-cut war. When Omar is captured after a deadly act of resistance, he falls into a cat-and-mouse game with the military police. As suspicion and betrayal jeopardise his longtime trust with accomplices and childhood friends, Omar must face painful choices about life, manhood and love.
