The people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when
their deceased loved ones suddenly start to reappear. An
8-year-old American boy wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a
rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details
start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob,
recalls that his hometown is Arcadia, and an Immigration
agent, J. Martin Bellamy, takes him there. The home he claims
as his own is occupied by a 60-year-old couple, Henry and
Lucille Langston, who lost their son, Jacob, 30 years ago.
While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as
his parents. Lucille is overjoyed at the seeming miracle of
her son's reappearance. Henry is reluctant to accept that
Jacob is back. Those closest to the family want answers,
including Sheriff Fred Langston, whose wife Barbara
drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob, and
Fred's daughter, Maggie, a local doctor. Pastor Tom Hale
seeks a spiritual reason for what's happening in his
community. When things take an even more shocking turn,
Maggie's life-long friend, Elaine Richards, finds herself
drawn into Arcadia, Missouri's growing mystery.
Bellamy, an outsider in the town, joins forces with Maggie
to figure out why the unexplainable is happening in Arcadia.
As their investigation plays out, Maggie learns some
unsettling truths about her own past. Will they be able to
solve the mystery of Arcadia before the rest of the world
catches on to events there? And will they be able to
protect Jacob from forces beyond their own control?
