Jackrabbit currently does not support 'nested' properties in the where 
clause. This is tracked as an enhancement in jira:

When this feature is implemented it will probably look different than: 
jcr:content.pm:description because the dot is a valid name character. 
maybe it will look like this:
... where jcr:content/pm:description = 'xxx'

but this is not yet defined.

In XPath syntax your query would look like this:
//element(*, nt:file)[jcr:like(jcr:content/@pm:description, 'To%')]

But as mentioned before this is not yet possible because of JCR-247.
