Saleeg invites us to embark on a gastronomic adventure where the connections we forge with strangers serve as the very soul of the narrative. Through sizzling pans and simmering pots, Saleeg reveals the power of a shared table, where diverse individuals come together, not only to savor the flavors that grace their plates but also to exchange stories, cultures, and laughter.

This film screens as part of the Shorts 9: Family Friendly Animation – Better Together program.
