Many years ago in the poor village of Gladbury, a humble candle maker prayed for a miracle to make the lives of all of the villagers better. As the candle maker wasn’t praying for himself, an angel appeared and touched one of his candles until it glowed brightly. From that day on life in Gladbury greatly improved and the villagers were happy. Every 25 years afterwards, the angel appeared on Christmas Eve and touched a candle giving a miracle to the one who lit it.
Then one day a new young minister, David, arrives in Gladbury. He has lost his wife and child to TB (a deadly illness) and no longer believes in miracles.
