Facing Mecca

Pensioner Roli comes to Fareed’s assistance when the Syrian refugee is faced with the burial of his Muslim wife. Together they stumble into a bewildering forest of Swiss bureaucracy to which Roli finds a beautifully simple answer. A touching story of how one man helps a refugee during one of the largest refugee crisis in recent history. One small act of kindness can change the world.
