Katherine Winter (Hilary Swank) doesnít
believe in miracles Ė she believes in facts.
A former minister, Katherine turned her back on the cloth
after losing her young daughter and husband while doing
missionary work in the Sudan, and now seeks answers through
scientific investigation rather than prayer. As a university
professor, she has become the foremost debunker of supposed
miracles, called to sites all over the world to investigate
weeping statues, wall stains resembling saints and palms
And so far, there is no divine mystery she hasnít solved.
But when small-town schoolteacher Doug Blackwell (David
Morrissey) seeks her help with a series of bizarre
occurrences the townspeople believe to be sent by God,
Katherine and her partner Ben (Idris Elba) come to learn
that sometimes miracles can be treacherous, and the line
between faith and superstition is dangerously thin.
Hidden among the woods and swamplands of Louisiana, Haven is
a town where the rules of reason seem to have been
rewritten. A child has died and the river has turned to
blood, which is only the beginning of what appears to be a
revisiting of the Biblical ten plagues upon the town.
For the first time in her professional career, Katherine
canít explain these phenomena with science. The townspeople
believe an enigmatic child named Loren McConnell (AnnaSophia
Robb) has brought Godís wrath to their doorstep, but what
they see as a harbinger of evil, Katherine sees as a lost
child needing her help. The more she is drawn into the dark
heart of the mystery, the more Katherine discovers her own
role in a conspiracy that threatens to shroud the world in
