Widowed on the day she becomes a naturalized citizen, Sophia is faced with the task of raising her three children alone; she marries again, this time to Edward James Olmos, whose obvious affection for Sophia's children is tempered by his erratic behavior. Filmed in Yugoslavia, Part One of The Fortunate Pilgrim was first shown on April 3, 1988 see also Part Two.
