Synopsis

Nine-year-old Jassim lives in a time that is rapidly changing. For us, he seems full of surprises, but to Jassim, becoming a superhero is his destined future, so he works hard to achieve it. ‘Boy Meets World’ follows a day in Jassim’s life. We discover the environment around him slowly, and see how this boy faces up to his biggest challenge: how to fulfil his destiny while everyone around him believes superheroes are myths. We also witness some of Jassim’s attempts to prove that he is the next Superman, and consider one of his other challenges: can he overcome the power of Motawa? However, ‘Boy Meets World’ is not about Jassim’s dream or his life; rather, it is a message to parents to open up the sky allow their children to fly.
