The Christian actor portrays a doctor in this inspiring true story about a miraculous healing and the power of prayer.
Adversity can at times unite people like nothing else, and such is the case in Miracle at Manchester, a new faith-based film that will stream on Pure Flix starting next month. It follows the incredible journey of a California teenager who won a battle against an aggressive form of brain cancer.
The picture stars Christian actor Dean Cain (God's Not Dead and Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman), Daniel Roebuck (The Fugitive), and Kory Getman as the aforementioned teen, and is based on actual events that played out in 2015 in San Diego, CA. That is where a high school sophomore named Brycen Newman underwent surgery to remove a tumor, only to have doctors discover more cancerous growths one month later.
It is at that moment, one of apparent hopelessness - because this form of brain cancer normally has a mere 5% survival rate - that nearly 2,000 people gathered on a sports field at his Catholic school to pray over the boy, leading in turn to a full healing.
Miracle at Manchester will release exclusively on Pure Flix on April 1st. That streaming service, which is owned by Sony Pictures, is subscription based and you can find out about a free trial via this link to its website. In the meantime, the trailer below will give you a better sense of what to expect from the movie.
