Omar, a young Palestenian militant, is accustomed to dodging surveillance bullets to cross the separation wall to visit his secret love Nadia. When he moves to the other side of the wall, the sensitive young baker Omar becomes a freedom fighter who must face painful choices about life and manhood. When Omar is captured after a deadly act of resistance, suspicion and betrayal jeopardize his longtime trust with his accomplices Amjad and Tarek and his feelings quickly become as torn apart as the Palestinian landscape.
“Omar” won the Un Certain Regard prize at the 66th Cannes Film Festival and was among the nominees for Best International Feature Film at the 86th Academy Awards.
