2ND ACT: Stephen Drew

Stephen Drew lives in the northwestern Connecticut town of Morris, a bucolic community that surrounds Bantam Lake. He moved there after a period of personal loss and tragedy, searching for peace and simplicity; a place to collect himself.

It was here he took up walking, and in the space of taking one particular step, was moved into a mystical experience that would forever change his life. Called to walk the Camino de Santiago, the Way of Saint James, Spain’s thousand year old pilgrimage route, he came to a journey of physical, psychological, and spiritual implications. Among the many outcomes of this walk were the reawakening of his writing voice, and a longing to share the story.
