About the triumph of good over evil and the power of faith, under very unique circumstances. Four criminals (3 men, 1 woman), who specialize in scams, organize a phony faith healing enterprise to make millions fast. They target an elderly, unsuspecting, blind, deaf, mute man, The Patriarch, who, based on faith, has been quietly healing a few people in his small town. The faith healing business becomes an international attraction, bringing fortunes to all. To the crooks' shock, within a few weeks of operating the scam, they undergo a slow transformation into honest, Godly, benevolent persons. Fast-paced, vividly sketched story. "The Miracle Man" was a silent movie featuring Lon Chaney Senior.
