SYNOPSIS

After years in Belgium, a young Congolese man comes back to his hometown Kinshasa to face the complexities of his family and his culture. THE OMEN casts some magic realism to paint a portrait of “outcasts” and “sorcerers” through the woven stories of different people, genders and generations, facing the bigotry and wonder of those around them.
