Plot Summary
Roman Catholic priest Frank Shore (Ed Harris), who is struggling with his faith, is an investigator in the canonization process of a woman who is said to have performed miracles during -- and after -- her lifetime. Shore interviews the woman's daughter, Roxane (Anne Heche), who tells him of the horrible neglect she suffered from the would-be saint. The priest must reconcile the daughter's stories with others' tales of the woman's worthiness, while also wrestling with his own carnal desires.
