Ralph Walker (Butcher) is a 14-year-old boy who's taking care of himself while his severely ill mother is in the hospital. After getting into trouble yet again at St. Magnus Catholic School, Ralph is ordered to join the cross-country team to release some of his energy. After Ralph's mother slips into a coma he's told that it will take a miracle to wake her up, and shortly after his coach Father Hibbert (Scott) says that it would take a miracle for anyone from the cross-country team to win the Boston Marathon. Convinced that he can make miracles happen, "Saint Ralph" begins training for the grueling race, never thinking for a minute that he might not win. (Tricia Spears)
