Mohamed Al Mahmeed / Short Narrative / Qatar / 2018 / 10 min / Original Language: Arabic / Interests: Animation, Action, Drama


Nasser is a highly-creative young boy who uses an imaginary world as a coping mechanism to deal with his parents’ impending divorce. Escaping to this comforting world he has created in his mind; he meets his alter ego, Captain Nasser. After overhearing his parents talking about losing their love for one another, Nasser naively sets out to recover what they have lost. Finding a bracelet, he and Captain Nasser race against time to save their worlds.
