A Santiago Voy
In a comedic tale of folklore and intrigue, 'A Santiago Voy' shares the story of Manuel Chirbes and his family and their desire to build a family business near the Way of St. James. After Manuel invests all his savings to buy a hostel located near the famous pilgrimage path, the Chirbes family realizes that the hostel is instead located in a village close to the road and not on the route taken by pilgrims. Unwilling to accept the failure of his investment, Manuel uses all his wit and charm to attract tenants to their hostel. Visit www.vmetv.com/shows/a-santiago-voy for a preview of their adventures.
