The popularity of the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage continues to grow. Four Czech pilgrimage stories also inspired a new pilgrim, who has just embarked on his long journey. He steps out of his comfort zone to not only discover the magic of the pilgrimage, but also to find himself. When a pilgrim meets a pilgrim on the way to Santiago de Compostela, their first question is clear: “Where are you coming from?” Because every step counts. This is evidenced by four pilgrims’ stories: Kvakin, who came from Boskovice; Olga, who managed her own pilgrimage at an older age; Mario, whose journey summoned him on its own accord; and Peter, who was paralyzed in half his body but got up from his wheelchair and hit the road. We also follow the pilgrimage of Kamil Bartošek, better known as the entertainer and mystifier Kazma Kazmitch.


Tadeáš Daněk (* 1989) studied film direction in Zlín. During his studies there, he managed to create an entire docuseries entitled Islam in the Czech Republic for the online television network Stream.cz. This was then followed by the docuseries Refugee Wave for Mall TV. In his docuseries Game of Likes, he casts the spotlight on the top 8 most popular social media platforms and 8 influencers who owe their fame to them.
