A deeply religious woman receives a birthday present from her five children: a journey to the most important pilgrimage sites in Europe. The dream of her lifetime is to get close enough to the Pope and look right into his eyes. An impossible mission begins! Dennis Yosick suffers from deathly cancer. Down to a 105-pound body weight, doctors tell him that he belongs in a Hospice, yet nothing in the world can stop him from leaving Chicago and travelling 5000 miles across the ocean to a Spanish Sanctuary, where he bids farewell to his life and returns home to Chicago. A young man from the punk and drug scene in Frankfurt sets out on foot, walking almost 1000 miles from central Germany to the heart of Rome, to join the World Youth Day. Upon his return to Frankfurt, he becomes well known. They call him "Holy Olaf."Biografía del autor:
