Four people transform a small town when an angel of light helps them in the most unusual way. The town and it's occupants are never the same again. It's a story of love, of life, of hope and of following your dreams.
One night, a little boy, an old man, a widowed mother and a successful business man all pray for the same thing. The power of their individual voices all expressing the same thought reaches the heavens and God decides to send down an angel to answer their prayer in unison. In that one night the town is transformed in the most unusual way. Some people are happy, some are shocked, some are scared, and some don't even notice the drastic change. For a while everyone is on their best behavior and the town has never been filled with so much kindness. But soon, the evil minded people in town find a way to manipulate this pure gift which angers the angel. The angel decides that people cannot take this gift for granted and everyone is given a special power. Will good win over evil? Will people ever learn that they are put on this earth for only one reason, to enjoy the journey, be happy, live in the moment and learn from their challenges? Unknown to the towns people, they are on the clock and if they don't all agree on a very simple task, this gift will be taken away from them forever. Can the 4 people who started this miracle, convince the towns people to change their ways and thus ensure happiness for generations to come? Hopeville is a simple story, told to inspire, motivate, and keep people realizing that they too can create their own miracle, if they only ask for it.
