Qatar National Day marks the historic day in 1878 when Sheikh Jassem bin Mohammed bin Thani, the founder of Qatar, unified the country under one banner. To celebrate Qatar National Day in 2012, Al Rayyan Productions created this top-notch animated short, which tells the fantastical tale of a Qatari brother and sister who travel back in time on the prototype of a futuristic train to witness the founding events of the State of Qatar.
