A journalist, looking for a scoop, tries to uncover the secrets and unmask a man named Elias, who has achieved miracles in the backlands of northeastern Brazil. In a fight of good against evil, she will hear stories that refer to biblical passages from the prophets Elijah and Elisha and will make her know The Word, change her beliefs and achieve a great miracle.

Inspired by the biblical accounts of the prophets Elijah and Elisha, according to the Book of Kings (17: 1 onwards), transferring Israel’s action to the Northeastern Caatinga, in northeastern Brazil. Elijah represents the traditional prophet who brings the Word of God to the population. Elisha, Elias’ spiritual heir, is the modern prophet, transformed into an engineer in the construction of the transposition of the São Francisco River.

Through the miracles achieved thanks to the Word of God, both prophets lead the journalist to know the true path to the Faith.
