When a mysterious man appears in a small town, unexplained miracles start to occur, changing the lives of everyone he meets. There's a mother whose five-year- old boy has leukemia, two doctors - one an atheist haunted by his past, the other a brilliant young oncologist who places all her hope in the power of modern medicine - and a blind pastor whose son hasn't spoken a single word in 38 years. All of them will be brought together by the presence of this stranger, who teaches them the true meaning of faith and hope.

Book-based faith-based drama has mature themes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Reason is a book-based faith-based story that uses a 6-year-old with leukemia to explore what it means for the faithful when bad things happen to good people. Death, blindness, miraculous healings, and serious illness make this an unlikely choice for kids. Talk of God and faith permeates the action and dialogue. A skeptic gives all the usual rationalist anti-God arguments, but the rest are firm believers, some of whom expect miracles in return. One character seems to be an angel who performs miracles. Someone dies in a hospital. A blind man slips in some spilled coffee, hits his head, and wakes up able to see. Mention of child abuse. A man learns that a drunken night created a child he didn't know about. Adults drink beer.
