The Unlikely Pilgrims (2013) Trailer
Trailer for The Unlikely Pilgrims.
The Camino de Santiago is a centuries-old 800-kilometre pilgrim trail through northern Spain, attracting thousands of tourists annually. The pilgrims in Kirsten Mallyon and John Cherry's revelatory documentary - nine years in the making - are not, however, your usual hikers.
Amy, Chris and Dave are recovering addicts. Ronan O'Connor, a drug and alcohol counsellor at a New South Wales rehab centre, has agreed to be their guide, but not their therapist. He's well aware that the trek will be a challenge for the trio, but is convinced that in order to move on, they need to take charge in the long haul through life's bumpy road.
