Life has never been too kind to Abu and his wife Ayisu. Abandoned by their only son, they’re not getting any younger. Yet Hajj is always like a distant dream. But now, after so many years of hardworking, money saving, and selling their assets, will God finally going to grant them their ultimate wish? A good film with very good messages and very good songs.
My Rating: 7/10
