    • Synopsis
    • High-powered entertainer Hape has reached a dead end in his life and decides to take a six-month sabbatical. Intrigued by the famed St. James's Way, he embarks on a journey to Santiago de Compostela in search of ... well, the meaning of life, but also of himself, and maybe even God... The path leads him on an arduous trek through a rough and mountainous terrain and to awe-inspiring locations in France and Spain. More importantly, the road to Santiago is also a gathering place for people from all over the world. Among his new acquaintances are Stella, a shy, quiet woman with a sorrowful secret, and Lena, a resolute young journalist. As he and his new friends finally reach the cathedral in Santiago, they now understand that even though the road has drained them of their strength, it has given them three times as much in return.
