Seeking solace and a sense of belonging after her mothers death, 18-year-old Brit returns to Morocco, her birthplace and home for the first six years of her life.

Brit falls in love with her Uncle Gaby, her mothers much younger brother. Gaby and the rest of the family try to steer Brits emotional energy away from him, and they urge her to fulfill her mothers wish that she make a pilgrimage to Fez to the grave of her namesake Suleika, a 19th century Moroccan martyr, who was executed because she would not renounce her faith. Gaby, who moves easily between the Jewish Mellah and the Arab Medina, offers a window for Brit to see beyond the confines of their familys life in Morocco.

Together, Gaby and Brit take the road to Fez and along the way surrender to their forbidden love. The Road to Fez is a magical journey of self-discovery.
