Description

Walking the Camino embarks on a journey with six strangers from around the world as they attempt to cross an entire country on foot – with only a backpack, a pair of boots and an open mind. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, each pilgrim throws themselves heart-and-soul into their physical trek to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. Most importantly, it is their personal journey to themselves. 500 miles on foot. Bunk-beds. Blisters. Stunning landscapes. World-class snorers. Hot searing sun, freezing cold rain. Kindness from strangers. Debilitating injury. Unexpected romance. No toilet paper when you really need it. Profound grief and deep doubt. Hunger. Laughing with new friends. Total exhaustion. You are guaranteed to experience all of this when walking the ancient pilgrim path, the Camino de Santiago.

Beautifully filmed, this intimate portrait of the dedicated walkers will move you.

Includes a Tasting of Galician Wine and a Q&A with Producer and 2nd Unit Director Theresa Tollini-Coleman.
