Cristina sneaks in a tearful prayer before she secretly slips off the grounds of her rural Romanian convent. Church bells usher her to a cab discreetly parked just out of view, and soon she’s on her way to the hospital. After a visit with her doctor, she hails a cab back to the convent, hoping to return before anyone notices she’s been gone. But Cristina’s foreboding travel plans are perilously interrupted, and a jaded police inspector has volunteered to investigate the novice’s whereabouts that led to her unexpected fate. With suspenseful revelations at every turn, the crime drama MIRACLE unfolds the layers of Cristina’s horrific case and the inspector’s obsession with solving it. Strewn with both believers and non-believers throughout—each with their own cynical interpretation of the state of the world—the film invites thought-provoking insights into the definition of a miracle, if such a thing can exist in such a God-forsaken place as this. —A.B.
