At forty-nine, Celeste has long renounced the religion of her
childhood. Yet she finds herself reluctantly accompanying her
mother and sister to a pilgrimage site in Romania, where her devout
mother seeks a miracle--a cure for her terminal illness. As Celeste
tries to come to terms with her mother's impending decline, she
realizes she has to confront the unspoken conflicts embedded in the
foundations of her family. Away from her husband, she must also
face her fear of what the future holds for them both. Full of
compassion, warmth and grace, "Pilgrimage" is a powerful meditation
on how our personal histories haunt us, and an affirmation of the
hope and sustenance that may be found in our imperfect families.
