Vic Mathews teaches a remedial class at the Blessed Edith Semple School in Scotland. Some at the school are trying to discover the two more miracles that would promote the late Edith Semple to sainthood; Mathews, a non-believer, wishes the school would concentrate on teaching the children. He becomes confused, however, when he is involved in possibly miraculous events himself!Written by

Cynical schoolteacher Tom Conti (as Vic Mathews) works at the "Blessed Edith Semple" school in hard-headed Glasgow, Scotland. Mr. Conti teaches learning-disabled students, like Ewen Bremner (as Stevie Deans). The boy/girl integrated Catholic school is trying to obtain "Sainthood" from the Vatican for its namesake, who has one documented miracle to her credit; "Edith Semple" cured a girl's blindness. Combed-over Brian Pettifer (as Father Cobb) is trying to find two more miracles in the kind woman's past. Music teacher Helen Mirren (as Ruth Chancellor) shows off her hourglass figure. Although he's not much of a believer, Conti should get ready to reevaluate his belief in miracles - because he's about to unwittingly perform them!
