Set in a small town in the Middle East, Digitales’ “Saleem”, tells a powerful and uplifting story of hope, resilience, friendship, and community, through the lens of a 9-year-old boy. Saleem arrives in the new town, carrying burdens of the past, after losing his father and experiencing displacement with his mother and two siblings. Outside their small rooftop apartment, Saleem stumbles upon a wooden chest. A mystical pigeon beckons him to open it, revealing what seems to be a treasure map. With new friends, Fares, Zeina and Abboud by his side, Saleem embarks on a life-changing treasure hunt adventure, filled with clues, challenges, healing, and victory. Saleem’s heartwarming redemptive story highlights mental health and offers unique and rich cultural insights. Its universal themes make it relevant and meaningful to families everywhere.
