A powerful and inspirational story of an American doctor, Tom (Martin Sheen) who comes to France to collect the remains of his adult son (played by Emilio Estevez), killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James.  Rather than return home, Tom decides embark on the historical pilgrimage to honour his son’s desire to finish the journey.  What Tom doesn’t plan on, is the profound impact the journey will have on him and his “California Bubble” Life.

“Martin Sheen shines in a beautifully made, unforced tale of spiritual reawakening and self-discovery that is as life-affirming as it is entertaining.”  (Jim Schembri – 3AW)
