Description: Manna From Heaven is a witty fable about what happens when you get a gift from God (a financial windfall), but many years later you find out it was a just a loan -- and it's due immediately. Once upon a time, a neighborhood in Buffalo, NY is mysteriously showered with 20-dollar bills. Theresa, a young girl who everyone thinks is a saint, doesn't have much trouble convincing her loose-knit "family" that the money is a gift from Heaven. Years later, Theresa, who has become a nun, has an epiphany that it is time to pay the money back, so she calls the eccentric group together to repay the "loan." The problem is, nobody wants to give back the money, nobody has the money, they don't know to whom it belongs, and most of them can't stand each other. What follows is a roller coaster of comic twists and turns. Along the way, the characters learn about family, romance, reconciliation and redemption. By working together they begin to realize their full potential and each, in a moment of selflessness, finds the dreams they thought the money would buy them.
