A few weeks before his college entrance exams, Réda finds himself obligated to drive his traditionalist Muslim father from their French suburban home to Mecca, on a pilgrimage that is one of the pillars of Islam - the hajj. Within these tight confines, father and son discover that the wide cultural and generational gap between them is a catalyst for confrontation. Yet each time a seemingly irreparable split arises, its resolution brings another level of understanding to their relationship. With several unexpected passengers attaching themselves to the pair along the way, humour intertwines with this heartwarming "road movie with a difference" (June Givanni, Toronto International Film Festival).
