A despairing young widow (Crystal Bernard) who abandons her baby at pond-side among bulrushes and a traveling man (John Terry) who's fighting to reclaim his own son (Graham Sack) are drawn together. A baby plops out of a rainy, stormy sky into the arms of the town's beloved, vaguely addled spinster (Grace Zabriskie). Miracles suddenly reverse the fortunes of the town as drought and unemployment disappear, only to be replaced by boosterism and greed.[4]
