The Way is a touching film about the testy yet unbreakable bond between father and son, and the supportive, almost-familial connections that can form among strangers.
Tom (Martin Sheen, Bobby, The Departed), an American ophthalmologist, learns that his son (real-life scion Emilio Estevez, who also directed and co-wrote the script) has been killed in a freak accident on a pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James, in the northwest of Spain.
Upon arriving in France to collect his son’s remains and return to the United States, Tom is hit with a profound sense of sadness and quickly changes his plans. Equipped with his deceased son’s guidebook and backpack, he embarks on the 800 km pilgrimage from the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela in an attempt to honour his son’s memory by finishing what he had started.
