Without a penny and almost in the poorness, Alec realizes a long-time stranded uncle Richard Heacock, a brother of his mother who lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, that accepts to solve Alec's money debts with one condition: that Alec moves Halifax by a year. Reluctant to the travel but threatened by a local pawnbroker, Alec accepts uncle Richard's propose. Therefore, when he arrives Halifax, discovers that the villagers believe that he is "The Chosen One", a man with the ability to heal all diseases, at the same time that Halifax's local Sheriff starts a procedure against Alec, in the belief that he's a fraud and he's cheating people.

6,2 is a bit little avg. rate for me but sadly this is understandable. Honestly I actually liked this movie but there are some problems with it .

Pros: - The film is really CUTE, and this is the perfect word for it - The movie didn't even want to get an Oscar price or something like that so not perfect at all but it's lovely. <3 Motivational, emotional and kindly <3 - This kind of films often has a sad ending, and often the people don't like it. In this case the ending isn't sad cause of the twist and the ending is more like motivational - Everybody thinks the main character is so unlikeable, but this isn't true.. a bit cringe but that's all Contras: - The producer didn't like the linear storylines and he didn't even want to work with it,

  • You have the feeling after 1 hour watching the movie: "This is like something's prelude."


In total: There are two option: you're gonna like this film as much as I do or you're gonna hate so damn much
