The unlikely pilgrims

'Nothings heals like a little distance' says the website of this Australian/Spanish documentary.
Directed by John Cherry and Kirsten Mallyon.
Playing time 1:30.



Four juniors, Dave, Amy and Chris had their problems in live. Together with counseller Ronan they walk the Camino de Santiago.

Limelight: The Unlikely Pilgrims is a triumphant tale about what can be accomplished if one has the courage to confront one’s own physical, spiritual and emotional limits.

"The Camino de Santiago is a centuries-old 800-kilometre pilgrim trail through northern Spain, attracting thousands of tourists annually. The pilgrims in this 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 an Australian rehabilitation 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 and down the track."
