This unusual, long-forgotten religious drama co-stars Hugh Beaumont (Leave it to Beaver) and Margaret Hamilton (The Wizard of Oz. It transpires in a Middle American town, where a European immigrant turned resident learns that the scourge of war has killed his wife. In the days that follow, he roams the streets searching for comfort, until a near-fatal automobile accident puts him at the mercy of the local citizenry. Movedd by empathy and compassion, the townspeople then band together to bring about his physical, emotional, mental and spiritual recovery. The film as a whole seeks to raise questions about God's interest in looking out for average men and women. Co-star Beaumont was reportedly an ordained Methodist minister in real life, which made the themes of this drama particularly relevant for him.
