Storyline

The film reveals a number of emblematic scenes from the life of the founding father of Qatar. We meet Jasim Al Thani as a young boy diligently studying in the Mosque before heading to his Majlis where he soaks up the adult world of his father Sheikh Mohammed. Jasim becomes a young man, showing us his skills as he and his entourage hunt Habara with a prize falcon. Now fully prepared for manhood, Jasim shows his strength and courage by challenging one of the Arabian peninsulas most fearsome fighters at the Battle of Messaimer. Betrayed by his enemies, Jasim is imprisoned and endures great hardship until his release, when he is greeted as a local hero in a triumphant homecoming. He returns to the task of liberating his country from the Turks, and having successfully shaken off the yoke of imperialism, he turns his attentions to the needs of his people, education above all. Finally, he unites the Qatari tribes and sets the stage for the emergence of Qatar as a proud, independent nation. Written by Doha Tribeca Film Festival
