Calvin is the owner of Millets Department Store, a village mainstay for generations, but many fear that itand the downtownwont survive his terrible run of bad luck.

Wilma prays for a miracle to save Ebbs special way of life, but shes surprised when it arrives in the form of a traveling salesman, if thats what he is. Vernon L.

He is welcomed nonetheless, because he seems to have the power to change minds, save fortunes, and fix broken hearts.
