"Omar and Us" tells a deeply conflicting story in which İsmet, a retired commander living on the Turkish-Greek border, experiences a number of events with the two new migrant neighbors who begin to live in the house of his neighbor, Sabri. İsmet finds himself in unexpected situations when Sabri welcomes the two migrants who saved his life.
