National Geographic Channel takes viewers on a three-day ritual that is both a spiritual and physical marathon. The annual pilgrimage to Islam's holiest city, the Hajj, made by millions of devout Muslims each year, is not only a gruelling trek and logistical challenge, but also the spiritual journey of a lifetime. Through the eyes of an Irish-born mother of two from Texas (USA), a successful Malaysian businessman, and a South African radio evangelist, viewers will travel with three pilgrims as they pursue the ritual activities of the Hajj amongst the suffocating press of two million other devout Muslims. From the amazing Tent City of Mina, to the creation of a "spiritual superhighway", witness how Mecca facilitates one of the most dramatic rituals in the world.
