Expecting a Miracle


Jason Priestly and Teri Polo star in this touching story about a troubled couple on a quest to rebuild their marriage. Hoping to rekindle a fading flame, Pete and Donna set off on a romantic, beach front getaway. But when car trouble strands them in a small, dusty town, their weekend vacation becomes the journey of a lifetime. They find themselves swept up in the preparations for an annual festival and profoundly touched by the faith of Father Arturo and one little boy. They help the couple discover that strength and hope can be found in each other.

Dove Review

Sometimes it is difficult for a couple who want to start a family to face the fact that it may never happen. Sometimes the couple becomes divided instead of reaching out to each other. Pete and Donna are that couple and they are on the verge of splitting up. Pete’s boss recognizes that something is not right so he offers his condo in Mexico to the couple for the weekend to see if they can find the romance they are missing in their lives. But on their way to the Mexican getaway they become stranded in a small village about to have a festival. There they meet some interesting people who help them find each other but also renew their faith.

This is truly a charming and heartwarming story with a few lessons that are taught along the way regarding faith, love and relationships. We are proud to award the Dove “Faith Friendly” Seal for all ages..
