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 and Omar is suddenly transformed into a freedom fighter.

Suspicion and betrayal jeopardise his long-term friendships and soon his loyalties are as torn as the Palestinian landscape in this award-winning thriller/romance.
