MIRACLE VILLAGE

Nestled between Floridian sugar cane farms lies Miracle Village, a self-sufficient Christian community of sex offenders on the trying journey toward rehabilitation. Amidst their Pastor's death, lawsuits, death threats, and malfunctioning ankle monitors, 19 year-old Juliet arrives, desperate for shelter. Embraced by a transgender prostitute, crushed on by a frat brother, inspired by a bumbling tennis coach, set straight by a "pray the gay away" choir teacher, and obsessed over by her social worker's Asperger's son, Juliet manages to shatter the harmony of her welcoming home, and in turn creates new precedents, new relationships, and new life.
