Christine (Testud) is a prisoner of her body due to MS, and travels to Lourdes with a tour group of people hoping for a miracle. Accompanied by a team of nurses and assistants, they visit the famed grotto, are bathed in the sacred waters, attend services and are blessed by priests.

Interlocking romantic misadventures beget both amusement and broken hearts in "Va Savior," a City of Lights charmer with a semi-serious edge and several superb performances.
