After an asthma attack nearly kills her, Amelie is sent to a clinic in the mountains to get well. Though her prognosis is serious, the last thing stubborn Amelie wants is to be seen as weak, so she largely ignores her symptoms and refuses to participate in the program. Fed up with being coddled by the staff, Amelie runs away into the beautiful landscape that surrounds the clinic, hoping to find some freedom. While hiding from the search team, Amelie meets Bart, a local boy who tells her of a miraculous healing fire on the top of the mountain. Legend has it, if you jump over the fire, any wishes for good health will be granted. Determined to rid herself of asthma, Amelie convinces Bart to take her to the top of the mountain, and together they embark on a courageous adventure in search of a MOUNTAIN MIRACLE.
