PHIL'S CAMINO is the story of a man with stage 4 cancer who dreams of walking the Camino de Santiago, a 500 mile long spiritual pilgrimage in Spain. Getting chemo treatments every two weeks, he is unable to travel so he does the next best thing: he makes his own Camino in his backyard, walking the perimeter of his property going through woods and pasture, and sets out to walk his way across Spain without ever leaving home. Eventually finishing in his backyard he is granted permission to miss a chemo treatment and he travels to Spain, along the way realizing his greatest pilgrimage is the one he travels within.
