Synopsis

Omar, a young baker, is accustomed to dodging surveillance bullets to visit his secret love, Nadia. But occupied Palestine knows neither love nor clear-cut war. Omar is suddenly transformed into a freedom fighter. Suspicion and betrayal jeopardise his long-term friendship with Amjad and Tarek and Omar’s feelings are soon as torn as the Palestinian landscape. However, it’s evident that everything he does is for his love of Nadia. The festival welcomes back Hany Abu Assad, the only director to open DIFF on two occasions. Abu Assad’s PARADISE NOW was the opening film at DIFF 2005.
