The Way

Martin Sheen plays Tom, an irascible American doctor who comes to France to deal with the tragic loss of his son (played by real-life son Emilio Estevez). Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage "The Way of St. James" to honor his son's desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn't plan on is the profound impact this trip will have on him. Through unexpected and oftentimes amusing experiences along "The Way", Tom discovers the difference between "the life we live and the life we choose". Written and directed by Emilio Estevez, "The Way" was filmed entirely in France and Spain along "The Way of St. James", also known as "El Camino de Santiago."
