Manolo has a simple life in Southern Spain, and loves two things: hiking and his animals, particularly his donkey Gorrión («sparrow» in Spanish). Against the advice of the doctor he decides to plan one last walk in the US, the brutal 2200 mile «Trail of Tears». But he will not go without his donkey.
