Jonas is a fraudulent faith healer, who uses all the tricks in the book to con the people attending his shows. Jonas and his team of helpers, including Jane who is in need of some romance, travel the country stopping at big towns and cities to put on their show. When one of the trucks breaks down in a small town, Jonas is quick to accept the challenge of making money in this town. His other goal is to seduce Marva, a waitress in the town, but she's a hard nut to crack, as is Will, the local sheriff who's determined to expose Jonas as a fraud. Written by
At the end of the film when Jonas is asked where he is headed, he says, "Pensacola." Though the film was made in 1992 while he was married to Victoria Tennant, his present wife is from Pensacola and her parents reside there. See more »

God works in mysterious ways even trough a con man
This is one of the most faith inspiring films i saw hope you all take a moment to appreciate this and enjoy this one man show, and how god can have a little sense of humor using a con artist slash preacher to bring joy and hope to this town
incredible the confrontation between the fake preacher and god himself proves him even with all the mockery and lies he is still used by god to spread his message and gives him a true miracle to prove him right
this remarkable ensemble of actors is also a must see to love this history and its emotional ending
God is always there could be the message
