From Elmore Leonard, the author of Get Shorty, Jackie Brown and Out of Sight, comes a supernatural satire about saints and sinners. Everyone at the Sacred Heart Rehabilitation Centre in Los Angeles is keeping a secret. One of their number, a Brazillian ex-monk named Juvenal (Skeet Ulrich), has the ability to cure the sick with his healing hands. Former evangelist Bill Hill (Christopher Walken) hears of the handsome healer and senses a money-making opportunity. So he asks gorgeous Lynn Faulkner (Bridget Fonda) to befriend Juvenal and persuade him to perform at stadium heal-ins. But Lynn and Juvenal fall hopelessly in love and she begins to question her dishonourable motives.
