Life in a Walk Synopsis
Can you remember the last phone call you had with your Dad? Can you recall his voice, the stories he told and the life lessons he shared?
Neither did Yogi Roth.
Yogi Roth realized that he had never dealt with the emotions stemming from his father’s battle with prostate cancer. In a single moment, Yogi decided that he never wanted to say, “I wish I’d spent more time with my dad.” He immediately flew home and invited his father on a journey that would change both of their lives forever.
Life in a Walk follows Yogi Roth and his father, Will, on their trek along the Camino De Santiago, a famous pilgrimage through Portugal and Spain, where Yogi listens to, learns from and discovers more about his hero than he ever imagined.
Through Life in a Walk Yogi hopes to inspire viewers to spend time with the people they care about while challenging them to break away from the daily rigors of life and technology to simply go for a walk with the ones they love.
