Synopsis & Overview
Joe Amable-Amo (Olmos) thinks nothing much in his background distinguishes him from other guys his age.
He is struggling with his faith after tragedy hits his life, losing a young child.
As the former amateur golfer's life continues to unfold, Joe is besieged with his marriage (Quinlan), working as a bank executive, and gearing up for retirement. But as he is about to discover, life has a way of throwing a curveball that changes everything.
Joe is working at his desk when he receives a message from God on his computer screen that tells him he has been chosen to deliver an inspirational message to the world that the seemingly impossible is possible.
Joe is told that he is going to play in the US Open golf tournament, and if his faith is strong enough, he will win.
As Joe embarks on a spiritual journey along with the Almighty's personal messenger and motorcyclist, Herb (Lopez), Joe learns to make a difference. He must learn to face his fears, have confidence in his abilities, and commit to faith, before he can succeed.
