A crew of explorers takes to the beloved, sacred Camino de Santiago – not by land but by sea – in this evocative, immersive documentary by director Dónal Ó Ceilleachair (Aisling Gheal, Ó Chúil Aodha go hÓileán Í). The adventurers, including a writer, two musicians, an artist and a stonemason, take to the waters in a traditional boat, a Naomhóg, which they built themselves.

There are dangers and challenges in their 2,500 km modern-day Celtic odyssey all the way from Ireland to France and on to Northern Spain, but joys and inspiration too, as we are invited to join them on their remarkable, surprising journey.
