Martin de Vries decides to go and walk the Camino, the famous pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, without any considerable preparation: from Le Puy-en-Velay in central France to the Spanish northwest; a thousand-mile peregrination. During the nearly seventy walking days, he films himself, his feet, his shadow, the path, the fields and the woods, trying to understand why he took on this adventure. He learns to be ‘in the moment’ and step by step examines, more and more frankly, his motives and his demons. Directing debut of De Vries, an editor (e.g. for Van Kooten & De Bie) and the founder of NostalgieNet. Up to the start of the NFF, this was the documentary that scored the highest box-office rates this year.
