Omar was born in the suburbs of Milan and was destined to be an auto bodyworker, but, instead, he became a successful ballroom singer. He got inspired by listening to ballroom singers at Angelo Zibetti's Studio Zeta, the biggest dance club in Italy at that time and, this way, he later started his own career. After about a decade working as a singer, he finally met Adele, the love of his life, who became his manager, turned him into a real icon for the fans of ballroom music. Thus he has become the man who could gather enormous crowds of audience at clubs, squares, and local festivals.
The film tells the story of Omar and shows him, in his 20th year of career with his band, as we travelled together with him in their long tour around many Northern regions of Italy.
A life in and out of the spotlight, mirror of a marginal and somehow old fashioned Italy, that is probably destined to disappear for good.
