A Life on Hold

Omar's story Part I: A Life on Hold

When war broke out in Libya last year, thousands of refugees from countries including Somalia, Sudan, and Eritrea were forced to flee for their lives.  Filmmakers Nick Francis and Marc Silver travelled with Amnesty International to a refugee camp in Tunisia where they met Omar, a Somali teenager. After fleeing Mogadishu and surviving an attack in Libya, he is waiting to be resettled in the Choucha refugee camp in Tunisia.
