Brothers Oliver and Juan Luís, the youngest with cerebral palsy and in wheelchairs, embarked on the journey of a lifetime when they set out to walk The Way of St. James, an 800 km pilgrimage through Spain on dirt roads and at times rocky terrain. They have been walking for one month, and today they must climb the most difficult mountain of The Way: O Cebreiro. Despite being told by many that the climb is impossible to do with a wheelchair, Oliver and Juan Luís are hopeful because they are not alone, they have been joined by six other pilgrims who have shifted their personal way and their dreams to help fulfill the two brothers’ dream. After weeks of walking and living together, they call themselves a family. In the course of this rise we will know the fears, joys and dreams that have brought this family together, in the face of an impossible feat: the climb to O Cebreiro with a wheelchair.
