About this movie

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 jeopardize his longtime trust with accomplices and childhood friends, Omar must face painful choices about life, manhood and love.

I just had to see this film when I read the synopsis. I was even more impressed by the trailer. But absolutely NOTHING prepared me for the cinematic wonder that is OMAR. This one is a must see!
