Tom è un medico americano di successo, che passa la sua terza età tra lo studio dove lavora e il campo da golf, dove si distrae con i colleghi. Qui un giorno viene raggiunto dalla notizia che suo figlio Daniel, quarantenne, è rimasto ucciso da un temporale sui Pirenei. Giunto in Europa per recuperare le spoglie del figlio, Tom scopre che Daniel aveva intrapreso il Cammino di Santiago de Compostela, un sentiero di 800 chilometri tra Francia e Spagna che i pellegrini percorrono a piedi, tappa dopo tappa, mossi da motivazioni personali anche molto diverse fra loro. Con la scatola delle ceneri nello zaino, Tom decide di camminare al posto di Daniel e di portare a termine il suo viaggio. Lungo la via, l'incontro con tre inattesi compagni di strada lo strapperà alla solitudine e lo costringerà all'esperienza, perché "la vita non si sceglie, si vive". (Mymovies)
