“The Carpenter’s Miracle,” a GMC TV original movie, debuts at 6, 8 and 10 p.m. Saturday, March 30 and encores at the same airtimes on Sunday, March 31.

The cast includes Cameron Mathison (“All My Children”), Michelle Harrison, Sarah-Jane Redmond (“Smallville”), Adrian Holmes (“Smallville,” “True Justice”) and Ryan Grantham (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid.”)

Details on the film, provided by GMC TV, are as follows:

Based on Judd Parkin’s screen adaptation of his own novel and directed by K.T. Donaldson, “The Carpenter’s Miracle” tells the tale of a humble small-town handyman, Josh Carey (Mathison), who finds himself at the center of media attention after attempting to resuscitate 12-year-old Luke Quinn (Grantham), the victim of a drowning accident. When the boy shows no signs of life for an hour, Josh consoles Luke’s mother, Sarah (Harrison), in the emergency room. But when he lightly touches the boy with his hand while offering a heavenward wish, the boy is suddenly revived.

Many in the town consider it a miraculous act. But Josh is not religious and doesn¹t believe he had anything to do with Luke’s recovery, even after he seems to heal several others in the following days. When local coverage of the story catches the eye of national tabloid news producer Jack Reardon (Holmes), he dispatches his most aggressive reporter, Delia Tynan (Redmond) to try to land an exclusive interview with Josh, Sarah and Luke. Although they politely decline her cash offers, Delia is relentless to the point of potentially disrupting a blossoming relationship between Josh and Sarah. But when Josh learns his elderly mother needs expensive emergency surgery, he must make a decision that could change his life and the lives of those he cares about most.

An Entertainment One (eOne) production, “The Carpenter’s Miracle” also stars Stephen E. Miller (“Da Vinci’s Inquest”), Candus Churchill, Aaron Pearl (“Intelligence”), Alex Sparling and Donna White. The film is produced by Randolph Cheveldave (“Goodnight for Justice,” “First Wave”).
