Omar tells of one man’s struggle to find a new home, but this could be the story of any one of the thousands who journey across the Mediterranean Sea in search of a better future for themselves and their families.


The film depicts the characters traveling through deserts and the seas, becoming victims of abuse, violence, robbery, torture, and illegal detention. 

Daniele’s OSTs musically accompanies the film plot with an emotional intensity that is hard to put in words.

The haunting ambient beginning of ‘The Village’ creates a perfect canvas for the notes of a dreamy harp and lush strings. ‘Better Future’ is the second track within the compilation that is musically both melancholic and hopeful, together painting a remarkable human story. ‘The Sea’ as a piece of music echoes the rises, falls, calm and violent uncertainty of the sea.
