Plot Synopsis:

This epic historical film tells the story of Libyan guerrilla leader Omar Mukhtar, who struggled to stop Benito Mussolini's invading army from seizing control of his country. Mussolini ordered General Rodolfo Graziani and his troops to destroy the Bedouin's rebellion but the Fascists weren't counting on the determination and skill of the Arab fighters.
