An inspirational modern odyssey.

After 13 years in Spain, jobless Hassan decides to go back home to Morocco. He buys a second-hand tractor and takes it on the 700-mile trek, choosing back roads to avoid trouble with the authorities. The sometimes comic, sometimes hair-raising events of his journey are based on real events, and the main character is played by the man who really lived through them. Hassan's optimism and determination are bound to win over the most jaded among us.
