In remote forgotten corners of the British Isles, Frank Hardy offers the promise of redemption to the sick and the suffering. But his is an unreliable gift, a dangerous calling which brings him into conflict with his wife Grace and his manager Teddy. Their competing accounts of past events reveal the fragility of memory and how we reshape the past in order to define ourselves. “Faith Healer . . . still blazes in recollection for me, as religious experiences of art do.” (Ben Brantley, NY TIMES)
