  • 2h 1m

When Tom (Golden Globe® Award winner Martin Sheen,The West Wing), a stubbornly sage American doctor arrives in France, no experience in his illustrious life has prepared him for the untimely death of his adventurous son Daniel (Emilio Estevez).

Grasping at memories and missed opportunities, without a compass to set him straight, Tom faces unimaginable cross roads in his life. Coming to terms with his loss and compelled to understand Daniel’s spirited ideals, Tom embarks on the grand historical pilgrimage “The Way of St. James” in order to honor his son and fulfill his last wish to complete the journey.

An inexperienced trekker himself, Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world, also looking for greater meaning in their lives: a Dutchman (Yorick van Wageningen,The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), a Canadian (Deborah Kara Unger,Silent Hill) and an Irish writer (James Nesbitt, The Hobbit), who is suffering from a bout of writer’s block.

This unlikely quartet of international misfits forge an everlasting bond and allow Tom to discover what it means to be a citizen of the world again, to truly appreciate the remarkable difference between “the life we live and the life we choose.”
