In The Pilgrim & The Prophet, an apocalyptic preacher, Pastor Barker, arrives into a sleepy midwestern town set on installing a violent theocracy as their mayor. To make matters worse the city has been plagued with both cartel violence and mysterious mass shootings by bible-quoting assassins. The only way to quell this ocean of violence is for Xavier, as the survivor of a recent mass shooting, and Victoria, the current mayor’s assistant, to try to reclaim both the city of and soul of democracy before time runs out on them all. But time is not on their side.
