Adapted from Ahmed Essop's short story by the same name, The Hajji tells a story about brotherly love and betrayal. When Hassen returns home to Fordsburg from his pilgrimage to Mecca he receives a message that his estranged brother Karim, who is seriously ill, wants to reunite with his brother. The strictly religious Hassen still holds a grudge against Karim for having rejected his family and turned his back on their friendship.
