Summary

Joseph Fiennes stars as the young Lieutenant Richard Burton who, in 1853, disguised himself as an Afghani pilgrim and undertook an expedition to Mecca. His aim was to explore the Holy of Holies. He chronicles this journey fraught with dangers and misadventure. But can he hide his identity from his two young guides?

Written by David Pownall and directed by Peter Kavanagh, this thoughtful dramatisation stars Akbar Kurtha, Rasmus Hardiker, Paul Rider, Roger Hammond, Inam Mirza, Jonathan Tafler, and Natasha Pyne.
