Fair warning - I am still a sucker for Hallmark original movies, including this one. Take my rating with the usual dose of salt. Many reflections on how to handle this sort of gift, but I finally realized that I liked the movie more than most of those reflections; certainly better than the previous ratings. Eddie Cibrian did better than expected in the role of the accidental recipient of the gift. Most other players were unexceptional at worst, perhaps even adequate. The script did not adequately explore the interactions with the patients, especially the one(s) who rejected the healing; but compensated by posing a question for all of us: how WOULD we deal with a similar imposition given the natural wont of others to make their need our mandate? I think the movie shows a reasonable reaction: hide the gift, use it when needed but do not allow the existence of the ability to be seen by others.
A near death experience gives a young man, engaged to be married, the ability to heal people.
