Manolo, a 65-year-old lawyer and atheist, is embarking on his 99th pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela – this time, however, he is recovering from COVID and has trouble breathing. Nevertheless, he is determined to reach his goal of completing the journey 100 times, using the pilgrimage as an opportunity for contemplation and self-discovery.
The Camino de Santiago, a popular pilgrimage route in Spain, has only recently reopened following months of closure due to the pandemic, which has devastated the region’s economy. The pilgrims, ranging from devout Catholics to freethinkers like Manolo, are an important source of revenue for the many hostels along the way. Despite their different beliefs, they all agree that walking the Way of St. James is a life-changing experience. Join Manolo and his fellow pilgrims on this unforgettable journey, filled with stunning landscapes, personal challenges, and spiritual awakenings.
