Although not his first film, (“Gospel” and Baby Boy” are a part of his extensive resume), “Christmas In Compton” is Omar’s first starring vehicle.
Shot in the City of Compton California, “Christmas In Compton” is the story of Big Earl, the owner of a Christmas tree lot in Compton, and a man with a big heart and a big vision, demands success from everyone around him. All kinds of trouble erupts the week before Christmas when his son, Derrick (Omar), part-time music producer and part-time Christmas tree lot employee, crosses the line to prove to Big Earl that he is a success. The colorful characters that populate the tree lot cause additional complications for Derrick as he tries to solve his problems secretly. Things spiral out of Derrick's control, jeopardizing the survival of the lot, and more importantly, his relationship with his father. What Derrick needs is a miracle; a Christmas miracle in Compton.
“Christms In Compton” opens November 9, 2012 in Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, Dallas and Philadelphia. Christmas in Compton Co-stars, Keith David, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Eric Roberts, Miguel A. Nunez Jr., and Orlando Brown.
