Sypnosis “The Way” is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends, and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son , killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago,. Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark 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 the world again. Through his unresolved relationship with his son, he discovers the difference between “the life we live and the life we choose.”

A powerful movie with strong spirituality blowing gently amidst the backdrop. A movie which depicts transformation, Pilgrims set on a solus journey on Camino de Santiago ‘The Way of St James’ become a community. Everyone is changed one way or another….
A film for the whole family.

One of Martin Sheen’s finest performance ever in a movie directed by his son. The family background which led to the movie is intriguing and can be found in the special features.
