Storyline

Patrick Messina, a once powerful patent lawyer marginalized by a life threatening disease is pushed out of his firm. At a meeting with his last client he encounters a doctor from a rural Sicilian village who has discovered a medicinal "cure all" made from the leaves of a centuries old Olive tree. Patrick's journey to identify the source of the tree's healing power uncovers a secret from ancient scripture that brings the past, present and future struggle with belief and faith for all that come into contact with what may be a modern miracle. Written by David J. Healey Executive Producer

No spoilers here I had a chance to see this at the Santa Fe Film Festival, which by the way has generally selected great movies. This however was one the worst films I have seen at a festival, let alone in a theater. The acting was at best mediocre, perhaps better directing, editing and a decent script could have helped what looked to be a pretty decent cast. The fillers involved trite romances which made the movie drag on and formulaic. The basic premise of the movie had potential, but this dramatization spoiled it. Perhaps others will forgive the listed complaints because the spiritual message spoke to them. And I suspect that was the hope of the producers
