Osamah Sami’s father inspired him to believe that anything was possible, and he’s been testing the limits his entire life. He speaks six languages. He has a black belt in taekwondo and a fake medical degree. He starred as Saddam Hussein in a musical comedy, then got mistaken for a terrorist at the airport in the USA.
Osamah’s father is his hero. When the pair visit Iran together, his hero dies. To bring his body back to Australia, Osamah must draw on every ounce of will and wit to wend his way through the minefield of Iranian bureaucracy.
Drawing from his award–winning novel of the same name and his recent smash hit film Ali’s Wedding, Good Muslim Boy recounts Osamah’s hilarious and heartbreaking personal history, and the beauty and contradictions found at the cross currents of two cultures.
