Awkward and middle-aged Fredi (brilliantly played by Gregory Gadebois), whose mother has recently passed away, discovers that he has his inherited her powers as a faith healer. He’s not at all comfortable with this "gift" of her healing hands, but after he accidentally runs over a boy with his motorcycle and then uses the gift to save him, Fredi’s world is transformed. While this miracle cure soothes Fredi’s guilt about the accident, it also begins to change his life and the people around him. When knowledge of Fredi’s healing powers becomes widespread, things become stranger and stranger. Based on a novel by multi-talented director François Dupeyron (whose other films include MONSIEUR IBRAHIM), ONE is a fascinating and moving character study of a man who is at once gifted and flawed.
