At Christmastime, Scott Weldon makes a desperate bargain with God: if God would heal his mother from terminal cancer, then Scott would do something special to honor Him. When Scott fulfills his part of the bargain before his mother is healed, a mysterious phenomenon occurs. This strange event is considered by many to be a miracle.
This "miracle" draws a number of spectators to Scott's home, including a television producer from California. Annie Rivers is planning to broadcast a special Christmas story called "Miracles Still Happen!" She doubts that a miracle is really happening, but the story is so compelling that she travels to Jacksonville, Florida to interview Scott Weldon. As she searches for answers, she begins to believe there is more to this mystery than meets the eye.
This happening also attracts controversy from the local media, city officials and the attention of a sinister visitor. With the support of his pastor and friends, Scott is hopeful that God will answer his prayer. But with growing opposition, will God heal Scott's mother even if he's forced to break his part of the bargain?
