Watch The Keeper: The Legend of Omar Khayyam
Omar Khayyam was an 11th Century Mathematician, a Persian poet and astronomer. The story has been passed down for centuries, and now, it's the responsibility of a 12-year-old boy to preserve the oral history of the story of his ancestor for future generations. His older brother is dying, so it's up to him. If you're a history buff, you'll love the way this historical film takes you into the past to experience vicariously the friendship between Omar and the originator of the Assassins, and how that friendship was stretched and tested when both men fell in love with the same woman.
