A man, Joshua (Tony Goldwyn), arrives in a small town. At first, no one knows his name; no one knows where he came from. He's strong and smart. The locals want to call him a stranger, but when they meet him, he makes them feel quite the opposite - like they've known him their whole lives.

Joshua is seemingly everywhere at once, making the kind of impression that few have ever felt. But it is exactly this influence that creates a division between the stubbornly orthodox Father Tardone (F Murray Abraham) and the well-meaning but less-than-confident Father Pat (Kurt Fuller), two priests who believe very strongly in the same thing, but in very different ways.

A carpenter by trade, Joshua sets his sights on re-building the burnt down Baptist church and it comes as little surprise that many in the town, regardless of their faith, lend a hand. This community spirit helps many of the them regenerate their lives, their hearts, their trust in themselves and each other. Joshua has shown them how to believe, especially Father Pat. And that draws the scrutiny of Father Tardone, who is not pleased with Joshua and his hold over the community.
