Overweight, overworked, overwrought – celebrated TV star Hape realizes he can't go on this way. He takes a six-month sabbatical, and embarks on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, the famed spiritual path of St. James' Way. He sets out in search of himself. A film about finding and seeking – amusing, moving and emotional.

Based on the best-selling book (translated into twelve languages) which helped launch the modern-day pilgrimage craze, I'M OFF THEN is a thought-provoking journey into the heart of one who seeks – and finds more than he ever hoped for... Filled with the comedian's self-deprecating sense of humor and shot at beautiful historic locations in France and Spain, the film stars Devid Striesow (THE COUNTERFEITERS, YELLA, 3), and Martina Gedeck (THE LIVES OF OTHERS, THE BAADER MEINHOF COMPLEX) in the lead roles.
