Martin Sheen plays Tom, who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son, killed in a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago. Rather than return home, Tom embarks on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son’s desire to finish the journey.
What Tom doesn’t plan on is the profound impact the journey will have on him. From the unexpected and, oftentimes, amusing experiences along The Way, Tom begins to learn what it means to be a citizen of theworld again. Written and directed by Emilio Estevez, this movie was filmed entirely in Spain and France along the actual Camino de Santiago. (PG-13, 2 hours and 3 minutes)
