A journey you’ll never be tired of.
The Great Journey reminds us of long forgotten human values.
Mustapha, an old French Moroccan, feels that he doesn’t have much more time to live. Before he dies, he wants to make one more pilgrimage to Mecca. Together with his modern son, he starts on a long journey, during which they slowly get to know each other. A loving portrait and road movie in one.
