Storyline
J is a rambunctious 9-year-old who loves superheroes. He often pretends to be one himself.
To correct her Son's wild behaviour and set him on a responsible path, Mary seeks the help of
a down-to-earth Priest and Christianity. After discovering Mary is sick, J sets out on his own
path with guidance from Father Joseph. Believing that the powers of God are similar to the
supernatural abilities of the superheroes he admires, J develops hope that having faith will
result in saving his Mother.
