Reda is relatively integrated into the community in Marseille so it comes as a surprise when his father announces that he is to drive him to Mecca to the Haj.  Initially relations are cool and distant as the two inhabit different worlds but as they travel and meet a range of people who affect them differently relationships thaw.

A beautifully filmed work, this was the first film to capture the Haj in Mecca.  The film is in a mixture of French and Arabic.
