In an episode that was clearly a labor of love for Londonderry-born Touched by an Angel star Roma Downey, Heavenly caseworker Monica (Downey, of course) is assigned to shepherd eight teenagers from Northern Ireland--four Protestants and four Catholics--to America as part of a humanitarian effort called Project Children. It is hoped that, by working together as a team to restore an old Victorian mansion, the youngsters will forget their inbred religious animosities and learn to live in peace and harmony. Monica invests most of her confidence in the unofficial "leaders" of the children, Catholic Tommy (Keith McErlean) and Protestant Rose (Lesley-Ann Shaw). Alas, old prejudices are not so easily overcome, nor are painful memories of the kids' war-torn past--and just when it appears that the project is a success, a devastating tragedy threatens to spark hostilties all over again.
