Storyline

The Camino de Santiago is a centuries-old 800-kilometre pilgrim trail through northern Spain, attracting thousands of tourists annually. The pilgrims in Kirsten Mallyon and John Cherry's revelatory documentary - nine years in the making - are not, however, your usual hikers. Amy, Chris and Dave are recovering addicts. Ronan O'Connor, a drug and alcohol counsellor at a New South Wales rehab, has agreed to be their guide, but not their therapist. He's well aware that the trek will be a challenge for the trio, but is convinced that in order to move on, they need to take charge in the long haul through life and down the track.

An inspirational journey
17 April 2020 | by acorsakSee all my reviews

The Camino walk is a very personal journey of self exploration and reflection. Although I've never walked it myself, I have had friends who have and have shared their amazing story. This film was a touching insight into what it takes to do the walk and how the journey can help to enlighten those with struggles bigger than most.
