Ending
Henry buys a mediocre house for full asking value (against the realtor's advice) after another homeowner refuses his unsolicited offer to buy (his childhood home) in the Los Angeles suburbs. Henry seems resigned to die, hoping to live a quiet life and living on beer and doughnuts. His neighbor Esperanza sees what she sees is the face of Jesus in the stucco siding of his house, and declares it a miracle; Henry and her priest don't quite see it. His other neighbor Dawn has daughter Millie, who's not spoken in a year and records conversations with her tape recorder. After Esperanza tells Henry the tale of dating the now-dead previous owner, Henry allows her to bring in a guy to test the stain and its mysterious-appearing bloodstain. (We also see Henry being told by a doctor he's dying by a disease steam-rollering itself through his body at a rapid pace.) After grocery store clerk Patience touches the wall, her poor eyesight becomes 20/20; Henry remains very skeptical. Millie touches the wall and talks again (mute for a year since her dad left them). Henry asks Dawn out for a walk, she accepts, and a dinner date follows. Henry touches the wall, but is still sick; Millie stops talking again without reason. He returns home one day to find a line of faithful at the wall, and angry, he tears down the portion of the house with the stain with a sledge hammer; it collapses on him. In hospital, Esperanza, Dawn and Millie visit, and Esperanza comments he was sick, and Henry learns he's no longer dying. He returns home, changing the writing on the wall from "Henry Poole WAS here" to "Henry Poole IS here," goes over and he and Dawn hug and kiss. Moving film reel
