Synopsis

In this gripping crime-and-courtroom drama adapted from true events, a Moroccan gardener, Omar Raddad (Sami Bouajila) becomes the prime suspect in the brutal beating and murder of a wealthy widow on the French Riviera. The bizarre clue that thrust him into the hot seat was the phrase “Omar m’a tuer,” scrolled in the victim’s blood at the crime scene which literally translates to the grammatically incorrect “Omar has kill me.” With no forensic evidence and a cursory investigation, Raddad is convicted and goes to prison for 18 years. In Raddad’s corner, a journalist named Pierre-Emmanuel Vaugrenard sets out to prove the gardener’s innocence. Roschdy Zem, who starred with Bouajila in Days of Glory, steps behind the camera to direct this thrilling story riddled with injustice, classism and prejudice. Omar Killed Me was selected as Morocco’s submission to the Academy Awards.
