Le Grand Voyage < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
Directed by Ismaël Ferroukhi
Feature Film • 108 minutes • France / Morocco

A few weeks before his college entrance exams, Réda, a young man who lives in the south of France, finds himself obligated to drive his father to Mecca. The wide cultural and generational gap between the two is worsened by their lack of communication. Réda finds it hard to accommodate his father, who demands respect for himself and his pilgrimage. The father wants to pray in Mecca before his death. From France, through Italy, Serbia, Turkey, Syria, Jordan to Saudi Arabia, the two embark on a road trip that will change their lives. This journey is a good example of the importance of faith and the significance of family learning to communicate with love and respect for one another.
