In the small village of Abadiânia in Brazil lives John of God, know as one of the world’s leading healers. The two friends Lisa and Fabian have one thing in common, they both have an incurable chronic disease. Fabian has rheumatism since childhood and Lisa was diagnosed with MS at the age of 20. Lisa is tired of just accepting her illness and is dreaming of a change. When she comes in contact with a woman who arranges trips to the Miracle Man, she sees it as an opportunity to be cured. Fabian is not as convinced, but allows himself to be persuaded. But is the Miracle Man the savior everyone is talking about, and do they need to believe to be healed?
