Are the West and the Muslim world heading for an inevitable clash or are we just experiencing the growing pains of a rapidly globalizing and multicultural world?

Can we find a common ground on issues like freedom of speech and the separation of religion and state? How deep is the ideological water really? Flemish musician and philosopher Jan Leyers, one of Belgium’s most famous and renowned TV hosts, decided to go out and look for answers in an exploration into the Muslim world; resulting in a series full of extraordinary encounters. The Road to Mecca is the account of an overwhelming adventure in a world understood by few, feared by many, and from which no one returns unchanged.
