A group of friends gather to mourn the loss of one from their childhood. The bond that they share is deeper than most friends. The group met at a summer camp where they were told by the head counselor that their disabilities could be cured by the power of prayer. Over the course of the night, the troubling truth about their late friend becomes clear, and we learn how each of these friends have grown since leaving the camp. The Healing features a cast of mostly differently abled actors.
