AMAL

Adventure, Animation, Family.

Set in a small town in the Middle East, Digitales’ “Amal”, brings you an endearing and uplifting story, about a 9 year old boy named Saleem. After losing his father and experiencing displacement with his mother and two siblings, Saleem struggles with making new friends and doing the things he loves. One day hope arrives when he finds a chest with a map that takes him and his new friends, Fares, Zeina and Abboud, on an adventure, to reach a treasure he never knew he needed! 

Amal is an endearing story of triumph after tragedy, with many positive mental wellness themes that uplift the viewer and instil hope. While Saleem’s story is set in the Middle East, it has universal themes that make it relevant and meaningful to families everywhere.
