In this up-dated version of Chaucer’s tales the pilgrims, travelling to the Vatican with flymetoashrine.com, are grounded by fog at Gatwick. To pass the time they tell each other stories, based on the Seven Deadly Sins.

The Insurance Rep’s Tale:
Cheating Death:  A tale of Avarice, Gluttony & AngerThree students decide to defeat Death and set out to find him. Old Age tells them they will meet Death under a tree but all they find is a sack of gold. While one student is sent off to buy food the other two plot to kill her. Encouraged by her Anger Manager, the first student poisons the food. When she returns her fellow students shoot her dead, then eat the food and also die. Death has triumphed.

The Merchant Banker’s and the Purveyor’s Tale:
January & May and The Tale of the Crow: Stories of Envy & Lust
When old January places an ad in the Lonely Hearts his friends weigh up the pros and cons of the replies he receives. He decides to marry young May, despite the wedding guests’ better judgments. Imprisoned in the house by her jealous husband, May begins a liaison with Damian next door. The white, sweet-singing crow informs January of this but he doesn’t believe the bird and throws it out to face a black future. When January becomes blind, May takes the opportunity to dally with Damian in the pear tree. The Merchant and Purveyor argue whether January should recover his sight and take revenge or May should get away with her escapades. Chaucer intervenes and suggests a compromise with the wife having the last word.

The Chaplain’s Tale:
The Story of Chanticleer: A tale of Pride
When Chanticleer the cockerel has a bad dream about a fox he fears it will come true but his hen-wives tell him not to worry as it is a good omen. When, therefore, he meets a fox he falls for his flattery and is persuaded to enter a talent show. The fox escapes with Chanticleer, hotly pursued by the villagers, whereupon the bird flatters the fox in return and escapes.
