A brilliant story filled with insights into love, heartbreak and friendship. Pilgrims starts out with Margie Krebsback dreaming up the idea of a trip to Rome in hopes of inspiring love and passion from her husband Carl. Her altruistic pilgrimage becomes the talk of the town with 50 fellow travelers booked to fly along. After warning of typhus and food poisoning and the seriousness of diarrhea, she still has 10 fellow travelers.
