June 2013. The deadliest flood wipes out Uttarakhand. Along with innumerable pilgrims travelling to Kedarnath. Among the 100,000 trapped and 5,700 presumed dead were 2 people who meant everything to Pooja, the ones who had given her life. But no news of or from them for weeks could only mean that they were gone. Forever. So, how do you say goodbye without closure? You sink. Deep into the abyss of grief. and as commonly said, ?When it rains, it pours.? Barely swimming through the storm of loss, Pooja tries every route-therapy, alcohol, drugs. The aftermath is a no?holds?barred account of a daughter who herself becomes a natural disaster through the wreckage of emotions. The Last Pilgrims is a brave attempt at the real account of the tragedy and is an honest story of love, loss and, finally, acceptance.,
