"If you love someone enough, anything is possible...even miracles."
In the year 1746, the village of Brigadoon vanished from the highlands of Scotland, hidden away by a miracle, to reappear only one day each century. No one could leave, but they were safe from the witches and dangers of the outside world.
In the year 1946, two American hunters stumbled into the village on that one day. One fell in love with a local girl, and that love was powerful enough to bring him into Brigadoon's spell. That day was not without costs, though, as one young man, heartbroken and lonely, tried to leave and was killed in the process.
It is now the year 2146, a Sunday, the fourth day of the miracle inside the village and 400 years later outside. Life goes on in the village as it always has...
...but when the villagers discover that their protections will end tonight, they must decide what to do. Do they rejoin the outside world? (And what has become of the outside world?) Do they try for another miracle, knowing that it will have a price? And what will become of two new strangers who come upon the village on this day of all days?
Even miracles end.
