The Hajj is an annual pilgrimage to Makkah that Muslims aspire to perform at least once in their lives. It is a journey that is as much driven by faith as it is fraught with danger. Ke-Makkah (To Makkah) presents the multi-faceted history of the passage to Hajj, through the spaces and passengers of a pilgrim ship travelling from Singapore.
