In the blink of an eye, everything can change. For Violet, it was the day her papa’s axe blade flew off its handle and struck her in the face. But now she’s on a Greyhound, bound for a TV evangelist, believing in a miracle. While faith keeps her believing she’ll soon have a new face, somewhere between Gene Tierney’s and Brigitte Bardot’s, this musical journey will be about healing many other scars as well.
