The clever boy Omar (11) gets a low level school recommendation, but with his mom’s persuasiveness, he gets in on a high educational level school anyway. However, he is the first and only Dutch Moroccan kid in an all-white highschool and he needs to figure out who he really is.
A webseries written and directed by Mo Jouhri
Omar receives a pre-university (VWO) recommendation and ends up as the only Moroccan student in a gymnasium. He hovers between two different worlds and feels a constant pressure from his family to set a good example. Omar then seeks help from a famous rapper and becomes entangled in a chain reaction of problems.
In the pilot episode “The Score” Omar experiences his first day at his new school. In an anxiety attack, he imagines the famous rapper “Rapper Rijke” as his sidekick.
