Here is the plot description for “The Way”:

“The Way” is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom: an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son (played by Emilio Estevez).

Tom’s son was killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking The Camino de Santiago (also known as The Way of Saint James). Rather than return home, Tom embarks on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son’s desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn’t plan is the profound impact the journey will have on him and his California bubble life.

Inexperienced as a trekker, Tom soon discovers he will not be alone on this journey. On “The Way,” Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world – each with their own issues and looking for greater meaning in their lives. Tom meets a Dutchman (Yorick van Wageningen), a Canadian (Deborah Kara Unger) and an Irish writer (James Nesbitt) suffering from a bout of writer’s block.

From the unexpected and amusing experiences along “The Way,” this unlikely quartet of misfits create an everlasting bond. All the while, Tom begins to learn what it means to be a citizen of the world again. Through Tom’s unresolved relationship with his son, he discovers the difference between the life we live and the life we choose. “The Way,” which is written and directed by Emilio Estevez, was filmed entirely in Spain and France along the actual Camino de Santiago.

The Way

I would say I have fully recovered from the loss of my grandma but have not forgotten her

Losing a loved one

I don’t think you ever really recover, you just learn to live with it. You carry the loss with you everyday and try to remember the good times before the bad.

The WAY - Loss of a Loved One

No, I haven’t totally recovered from the LOSS OF MY DAD? Does one every recover? He suddenly and unexpectedly experienced a massive heart attack.

I’ve managed to move forward but I have not totally recovered and not sure if I ever will.

Loss of a Loved One

I don’t think you ever recover from the loss of a love one. You constantly think of them and they’re always in your heart. Yes, you can move forward but do you ever recover? I doubt it.

Losing a loved one

The best way to get over the lost of a loved one is to go on living every day as best you can because that is what our loved ones would want us to do.

Recovery is a subjective

Recovery is a subjective term. Do you go back to how you were Before? Never. Do you come to terms and move on? Yes - and that’s what’s happened in my life after I’ve lost a very dear family member.

Dealing with the loss

I don’t think I need to be over someone I’ve lost, but I do think you need to remember them for their best qualities/shared memories.

Mourning a loved one

When I lost my great-grandmother, I remembered how musical she was and decided to take guitar lessons. She loved to sing in the choir and just loved singing. Learning to play music made me feel closer to her spirit
