Reda is a French teenager, one day his father asked reda to accompany him on a pilgrimage to mecca, he reluctantly agreed eventhough he had to leave an examination in his school/campus.
They traveled by car not by plane, along the way, they met several interesting experiences, and they also met some characters, on the way to mecca, reda learnt much about islam.

The tones were dominated with seious tone, but some time also mixed with humorous, but in the ending of the movie was sad scene.
The movie portrays the relationship between father and son on a religious pilgrimage trip by car.
8. Messegas/ lessons learnt from the movie
This movie tought me:
- Doing a religious pilgrimage will teach us a lot of lesson about life an religion.
- Respecting parent, they have their own reason or way to educate us.
- Aware with our obligation as a mouslem.
- Helping each other, eventhough we are in the difficulty.
- We never knows when some of our family or relatives or friends will leave us (die), so always show our best attitude to other .
