Synopsis: [A] humble coffee shop owner... is visited one day by the angel Gabriel who whisks him away in a flying carpet to go on the Hajj - the religious pilgrimage to Mecca that is an important pillar of the Islamic faith. The unwilling pilgrim protests, and insists that if the angel has the power to force him to go on that journey then he can instead take him to Florida to visit with his estranged son. After putting up a fight the angel relents and takes the man to Miami, where he is able to try to patch things over with a bewildered son. -- from a review
