​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​On the morning of September 11, 2001, a woman driving the back roads west of Philadelphia spies a hitchhiker and impulsively gives him a ride. They engage in an odd conversation in which he seems to know more about her than a stranger should, and after dropping him off she convinces herself that he was Jesus Christ.

Hard upon this come the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, and her safe, routine world is upended. When her family takes her suspicion as evidence of possible mental instability, she resolves to find the stranger and learn the truth -- and in doing so, plunges into an incredible adventure, one which promises great spiritual rewards, but may cost her everything she knows and loves.
