Tom (Martin Sheen) is an irascible American doctor who comes to France to deal with the tragic loss of his son (Emilio Estevez). Rather than returning 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."

The DVD bonus features include commentary by Martin Sheen, Emilio Estevez and producer David Alexanian; Camino Americana: Taking The Way On The Road; Pilgrimage: Behind The Camera; Father & Son: Uncovering The Characters; and Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son - a dual memoir by Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez.
