Walking the Camino follows the unusual journey of six strangers, each from a different part of the world, as they attempt to cross an entire country on foot with only a backpack, a pair of boots, and an open mind. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, each pilgrim throws themselves heart-and-soul into their physical trek to Santiago and, most importantly, their personal journey to themselves.

About the filmmaker: Lydia B. Smith has been involved in the film industry for more than a quarter of a century, writing, directing and producing numerous films. Lydia lived in Spain for over six years and speaks flawless Spanish, in addition to Italian and Catalan. A lover of hiking and nature, Lydia is also a licensed Spiritual Practitioner from the Agape International Spiritual Center and from the United Centers for Spiritual Living.
In the Spring of 2008, she walked the Camino de Santiago and the effects it had on her were truly life-changing. Along the way, she realized that she was not fulfilling her life’s purpose. Since the Camino is all about stepping out of one’s comfort zones, Lydia felt called to step into her full potential and direct this, her first feature-length film.
