Omar killed me

Roschdy Zem

In 1991, Omar Raddad is jailed for the murder of Mrs. Marchal, who employed him as a gardener. Three years later, a writer convinced of Omar's innocence decides to launch his own investigation into the case. Thus the paths of two men with nothing in common are intertwined. Based on a true story, the film tells the hard tale of an immigrant in France, and how he gets sucked in by the media and justice.(source: Brussels Film Festival)
