When 9-year-old Yura moves from the city to a small town, he immediately feels lonely and isolated. All that changes during a school prayer session. Yura opens his eyes and spots a small, silent Jesus Christ dancing on the altar. The miniature Jesus, which nobody else can see, quickly becomes a regular presence in the young boy’s life. He also starts answering Yura’s prayers including one for a new friend. However, these miraculous changes in fortune don’t last forever. After events take a turn for the worse, he starts to question the power of his prayers.
