Plot – Frankie lives in Pittsburgh and she's a girl like so many others: she works as a hairdresser, she has a beautiful house but she's sentimentally undecided. Despite this, her life flows peacefully until she receives a packet from Brazil. It's from her mother and it contains a crucifix that Frankie initially looks with indifference, then she leaves it apart. Few days later, Frankie begins to be hurted through strange and violent phenomena: she's mysteriously injured at her wrists, then on hands and feet. Doctors say it might be epilepsy and Frankie is hospitalized while a priest, who has witnessed the girl's violent hysterical attacks, believes the phenomenon may have religious origins and informs the Vatican. Cardinal Houseman decides to send to Pittsburgh Father Kiernan, a priest-scientist, to verify such unexplained phenomena.
