Although a successful romance novelist, Terry Russell hasn't had luck in her own love life. After a disastrous first date with cocky, hot-shot New York chef Matthew Everston, she retreats to her friend's French villa for the summer to finish her latest novel, with her reluctant teenage daughter in tow.
A grieving father (Martin Sheen) walks a pilgrimage in Europe called the Way of St. James in honor of his late son, who died making the same journey. Along the way, he befriends people from around the world and experiences a profound epiphany.
Directed by Alana DeJoseph, this film tells the story of the Peace Corps, a volunteer program that sends Americans to various parts of the world. The aim is to establish a new concept of international relations while giving young people an opportunity to serve the U.S. The program has deployed over 200,000 volunteers who have immersed themselves in 60 countries since 1961. Today, as sociopolitical factors are rapidly changing, the Peace Corps is trying to strike a balance between maintaining its work and making itself relevant and attuned to the changing times. Narrated by Annette Benning.
