In a Welsh village the sick come in search of a cure.
They want a moment with Frank, the mercurial showman, who offers hope and salvation. Because Frank has a gift. A gift of healing.
Through the 1950s and 1960s, Frank and his wife, Grace, travel to remote corners of Scotland and Wales, before eventually returning to Frank’s native Ireland. Accompanied by his manager Teddy, they move from village to village, bringing with them an unpredictable mix of theatricality and the spiritual.
