Jerry, a thirty-six-year-old energy therapist takes a blow to the face. With that solid thwack, Bartek, whose mother has been seeking a cure in Jerry’s care, makes him painfully aware that his powers are gone for good. One day, his healer’s powers return to him unexpectedly when he takes in a stray dog. He becomes a genuine, local miracle worker. But not for long. His powers vanish when the dog does. Will he regain his gift?
