What does it take to discover the truth? Betrayal? Deception? Risking one’s own life? Omar Ouda did it all.
Life in Gaza is captured carefully on every page as Omar continues his search for his father and is pushed along the way to make decisions that force him to choose between his family and his country. Lost, without a father and without a homeland, Omar desperately seeks comfort in the face of the unknown, knowing that neither his home nor his land is secure.
