Storyline

Patrick Messina, a once powerful patent lawyer thrown off track by a life threatening disease is pushed out of his firm. At a meeting with his last client he encounters a doctor from rural Sicily who has discovered a "cure all" medicine made from the leaves of a centuries old Olive tree. Patrick's journey to identify the source of the tree's power uncovers a profound truth: Is it science or a secret from ancient scripture? The past, present and future intersect through the ongoing struggle of doubt, belief and faith for all that come in contact with what may or may not be a modern miracle. Written by David J. Healey Executive Producer

An independent film in a category of its own
15 October 2015 | by angelspn-37373See all my reviews

This film moved me. Everything, from the setting to the casting to the story, fits together in a way that I would expect from a Hollywood blockbuster. I felt the characters transform as I saw them on the screen. And how could they not? Sicily proves a hidden gem that brings the characters--and this film--to life in a vibrant, spiritual way.

The story moves with excellent pace and plenty of intrigue. I found myself glued to the screen, curious about what would happen next. Veterans like Eric Roberts, Armand Assante, and Sean Young all give brilliant performances, and the lesser-known members of the cast deliver with equal force. The movie promises to be a spiritual tale about transformation, and it fulfills that promise in ways I never expected.
