A crew including musicians Glen Hansard and Brendan Begley, artist Liam Holden, stonemason Brendan Moriarty, and the late writer and poet Danny Sheehy embark on a voyage by sea to the Camino to Santiago de Compostela. In their naomhóg, a traditional boat they built themselves, they set out on a gruelling 2,500 km modern day Celtic odyssey all the way from Ireland to Northern Spain. Pulling into coastal towns and villages en route, camping, cooking and nursing their blisters, this eclectic crew will forge many new relationships, surprising those they meet with the simplicity of their vessel and inspiring them with their courage, endurance, storytelling, music, poetry and song.
