Based on Stephen Fry's novel of the same name, poet Ted Wallace is summoned to his friend's country manor to investigate a series of unexplained miracles.

After he is fired from his job, disgraced poet Ted Wallace (Roger Allam) is summoned to Swafford Hall, the country manor of his friends Lord and Lady Logan (Matthew Modine and Fiona Shaw), to investigate a series of unexplained miracle healings. With a poet’s passion for the truth – not to mention a penchant for the bottle – the naturally cynical Ted hurries to debunk the miracles and get to the bottom of events.
