Annie's been told that El Camino changes everyone, and change is what her 28-year-old son, Jake, needs. After six years lost to the chaos of schizophrenia, he is finally stable. Driven by love and determination to see Jake thrive, Annie takes him to Spain to walk the ancient, Christian, pilgrimage trail. She believes stepping away from all that is familiar will break the grip of stigma and start to heal Jake's shattered self-image. As they trek across northern Spain, the Camino mystique unfolds. Annie sees shades of the old Jake emerge, renewing her faith that he can have a meaningful life. But the wide-open spaces and the rhythmic walking freeing Jake, plunge Annie onto a journey she did not anticipate. Memories return and self-reflection brings turmoil. Yet it is Jake's encounter with a beautiful, young, woman, who is on her own healing journey, that embodies all Annie desires for Jake, and all she fears. She must confront what love is now asking of her.
