After his dog almost died on his way to Santiago de Compostella, Jacob Splinter, a sporting senior, accepts the invitation of a man to take a break in his holiday home. When Jacob wants to resume his journey, the seemingly hospitable family has no intention of letting him go. Jacob’s Way is a viewer’s quest through Jacob’s head, past and the present are indistinguishable.
