Storyline

Alec Bailey is a gambling, womanizing bankrupt electrical repairman who still is traumatized by the death of his twin brother Charlie. Without a penny and almost in the poorhouse, Alec learns he has an uncle, Richard Heacock, brother of his mother, who lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Richard offers to solve Alec's money debts with one condition - that Alec moves to and lives in Halifax for a year. Reluctant to the travel but threatened by a violent money collector, Alec accepts Uncle Richard's proposal. When he arrives in Halifax, he discovers the villagers believe he is "The Chosen One," a man with the ability to heal all diseases. At the same time, Halifax's local Sheriff starts a personal campaign against Alec in the belief that he's a fraud who's cheating people. Trapped by a situation that little by little overwhelms him, Alec finds a friend in Cecilia, a lovely local veterinarian. Richard tells Alec his ancestors are a family of healers with the gift to heal if it's in the fate ... Written by Chockys
