“Find your purpose”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “A hairdresser single-handedly rallies an entire community to help a widowed father save the life of his critically ill young daughter

Based on a remarkable true story, ORDINARY ANGELS centers on Sharon Steves (Hilary Swank), a fierce but struggling hairdresser in small-town Kentucky who discovers a renewed sense of purpose when she meets Ed Schmitt (Alan Ritchson), a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters. With his youngest daughter waiting for a liver transplant, Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. She rallies the entire community while the community is hit by a major snowstorm from the 1994 North American cold wave. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels.”
