In the film, Morgan plays a disgraced journalist looking to get his career back on track by investigating the Alice, a young, hearing-impaired girl who claims to have been visited by the Virgin Mary, giving back her hearing, along with an ability to heal the sick.

But as crowds flock to witness her miracles, Morgan’s character begins to uncover a much more frightening truth.
