An older couple plan for the Hajj they have dreamed of most of their lives. They make sacrifices, selling off items precious to them like the jackfruit tree in front of their home to be cut up for timber, their milk cow and calf (which don’t just provide milk, but also companionship for the wife who talks to them when she is lonely while her husband is away), and jewelry the husband has given his wife over the years. They also make certain that any debts owed (of which there are none) and forgivenesses needed (which are only imagined) are cleared as required before embarking. Despite the inconveniences and sacrifices, things are going well until just before the departure date when things begin to unravel.
The fondness, and even love, the villagers have for each other is heartwarming, as is the compassion between people of different faiths. Beautiful cinematography further enriches this tender, caring, compassionate film.
