The first step of any great journey can be the most challenging one of all. When Tom (Martin Sheen), 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 honour his son and fulfil 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), a Canadian (Deborah Kara Unger) and an Irish writer (James Nesbitt), 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." Written and directed by Emilio Estevez (Bobby), The Way is a visual and emotional feast for the senses, capturing some of the most spectacular scenery throughout Spain and France, along the actual Camino de Santiago, one of the most awe-inspiring and popular treks in the world.
