Plot Summary
Edna (Ellen Burstyn) has a near-death experience when she and her husband drive off a cliff. Widowed and paralyzed, Edna returns to Kansas with her grandparents, noticing the curious effect her touch has on a girl's bleeding nose along the way. Her gift for healing people attracts the attention of a small-town community, including a young man (Sam Shepard) who becomes her lover. An agnostic herself despite her powers, Edna finds her lover has a dangerous obsession with religion.
