Synopsis
Saleem is only nine years old when his family is forced to flee their war-torn home for a small town in a neighboring country. Bullied at his new school and suffering the after-effects of trauma, Saleem finds adapting to this strange place difficult, but his life takes a turn for the better when he comes across a treasure map. With three new friends, he sets out to follow the map’s clues, facing up to the journey’s challenges and meeting characters who give him hope and a sense of healing. An exciting adventure that also reflects with sensitivity on children’s mental health issues, this is a heartwarming film for children that also has plenty to say to the grown-ups around them.
