Based on Judd Parkin's screen adaptation of his own novel and directed by K. T. Donaldson, The Carpenter's Miracle tells the tale of a humble small-town handyman, Josh Carey, who finds himself at the center of media attention after attempting to resuscitate 12-year-old Luke Quinn, the victim of a drowning accident. When the boy shows no signs of life for an hour, Josh consoles Luke's mother, Sarah, in the emergency room. But when he lightly touches the boy with his hand while offering a heavenward wish, the boy is suddenly revived.
The plot thickens as a national tabloid reporter descends on the small town to get the scoop. Her cash offers are initially declined, but when Josh learns his elderly mother needs expensive emergency surgery, he must make a decision that could change his life and the lives of those he cares about most.
The seed for The Carpenter's Miracle was planted when, after reading Judd Parkin's Christmas-themed novel of the same title, GMC Vice Chairman Brad Siegel and Senior Vice President of Originals Barbara Fisher both knew it had the potential to make a great original movie for the network. But given its central themes of faith, skepticism and miracles, they asked the TV-exec-turned-author if he would consider adapting it into an Easter movie.
"It's hard to find entertaining, contemporary films that evoke the spirit of Easter," says Fisher. "We talked to Judd and he agreed it could work as well, if not better, as an Easter story."
The Carpenter's Miracle stars Cameron Mathison ("All My Children"), Michelle Harrison, Sarah-Jane Redmond ("Smallville"), Adrian Holmes ("Smallville," "True Justice") and Ryan Grantham (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus).
