Maybe a Miracle opens on the night of Monroe Andersonâ€™s senior prom. He is uncomfortably dressed, dying for a smoke, and worried about his sexual prospects for the evening. Then he sees his 11 year-old sister, Annika, lying face-down in the family swimming pool. He breathes life back into her body, but her mind remains in a deep and mysterious coma. From this moment on, Monroeâ€™s life will be different. As family and friends rally round, hoping and praying that Annika will wake up, strange things start to happen around herâ€¦
Whilst Monroe doesnâ€™t believe in miracles â€“ let alone think his little sister can perform them - it seems others are more easily convinced. As stories of Annikaâ€™s healing powers spread, Monroe can only stand by and watch as his mother, her church and the media attempt to elevate his sweet, annoying and wonderfully ordinary sister to virtual sainthoodâ€¦.
