LE GRAND VOYAGE

A few weeks before sitting for his A-levels, Reda, a 20-year-old student living in the French Provence, finds himself compelled to accompany his father who wishes to accomplish the hadj, the ritual pilgrimage to Mecca. In their car journey spanning southern France, Italy, Serbia, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, and finally Saudi Arabia, their initial indifference and hostility turns into mutual recognition and reconciliation.
