Synopsis

‘Superpower’ is the story of Jassim, a cancer-ridden Qatari teenager who returns home to his dysfunctional family after spending time in a hospital. Fatma, Jassim’s loving, religious sister, notices her brother’s anxiety and their parents’ lack of concern for him. Jassim shows her a list of the tallest buildings in the world, which he would visit if he were not ill. Fatma convinces Jassim to run away with her to visit the buildings, in Dubai, New York City, Tokyo, Shanghai and Mecca. When their parents learn of Jassim and Fatma’s adventure, they join them in New York, which becomes a battleground for the whole family. As Jassim and Fatma continue their trip, they come to understand who they are, their faith and their dreams.
