Saai

On his first visit to Makkah since 1979, Salem, a retired soldier and taxi driver is forced to drive his neighbor Fatima, a single-mother school teacher along with her sick daughter. Salem has one condition, to be able to pick up other riders along the way to make it worth his while. Which is where Sabir comes in, an Egyptian honeymaker in his late 50's who joins them on his way to make his last pilgrimage to makkah before he returns for good to his family. Their car breaks down in a remote village, after taking a detour to avoid a police check point that could have Sabir in trouble. They go their separate ways, each of them confronting their demons and experiencing the city in their own way.
