Each year nearly 200,000 people from more than a hundred nations walk along the 800 kilometers journey of Santiago de Compostela. For many this is a life-changing experience, a journey like no other. The documentary tells the story of Gian D. Ceccato, a retired engineer of Ontario Power Generation. In August 2012, aged 71, he left, on foot, from Saint Jean-Pied de Port (FR) near the Spanish border, heading to the Shrine of Santiago de Compostela, tomb of the apostle James.
