Omar. 19 years old. Syrian – The young man has seen and experienced too many difficult things. His father is said to be a powerful figure close to the Syrian authorities, who protected his son but also had him imprisoned. “My father was rich and he told me that if I studied in a military school I would become rich like him.” The episodes in Omar’s life are tied up with the intrigues of the conflict: imprisonment, the murder of his girlfriend, a car full of explosives and the “666 services of the Syrian government.” Chaos and violence became part of the nightmares of a troubled teenager. Omar lives in a collective container at the Samos hotspot. He has just been authorized to continue his journey to Athens. | Hot spot Samos - Greece 2017
