In the 1960’s, school teacher Mahir is relocated from the city to a remote mountain village in Palu against the wishes of his wife and daughters, but when he gets there he discovers that not only is the village impoverished and lacking most modern conveniences, it doesn’t even have a school! With the country under martial law and the acting government unreliable at best, the village is left forgotten; so Mahir rallies the villagers and they build their own school. He contributes to the education of all the children, along with that of the one adult who needs help the most, a handicapped man named Aziz. The Miracle depicts the heart-warming and emotional journey of people who are given a chance to improve their lives at the most basic level, thanks to simple acts of human understanding.
