12-year-old Tonio is the victim of a hit-and-run driver; before losing consciousness, Tonio sees a bright light. He gradually recovers from the coma. One night Tonio encounters a patient suffering a fatal heart attack, but when he touches him he revives. Has his near-death experience transformed Tonio into a miracle healer? THE MIRACLE is less an exploration of faith than it is a look at the effects on people of what they deem to be miraculous.
