Meet the Polish-American very Catholic Nowak clan of Buffalo, NY. Clara and her three grown kids have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous night in 1942 when the Blessed Mother appeared to Grandpa in his barbershop! Since then, the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowaks’ 20-foot commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble. And now daughter Ruth unveils her plan to write and star in a one-woman show about the family miracle so the “whole world will know!” However, as her plans for theatrical immortality unfold, the entire family’s faith is shaken to the very core when a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel. The results are heartfelt and hilarious.

born in Poland but brought to the USA as an infant, the family matriarch, lives (present day) in an old rundown house in the “Hydraulics” section of Buffalo, NY; urban blight has settled in, and this particular dwelling sits behind a neighborhood soup kitchen which used to be a barber shop; there is a charmingly naive Old World peasant air about her.
