Storyline

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 Rob Hartill

You must see this film!!

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
