Hilary Swank is on a mission to help a struggling widower in Ordinary Angels.
PEOPLE has the exclusive first trailer for the Lionsgate drama, in which Swank, 48, plays Sharon, a “fierce but struggling hairdresser in small-town Kentucky who discovers a renewed sense of purpose when she meets Ed (Alan Ritchson), a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters,” according to an official synopsis.
“With his youngest daughter waiting for a liver transplant, Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it,” the synopsis adds. “What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles and ordinary angels.”
The trailer begins with Sharon at an alcoholism support group, before it cuts to her discovering the story of the young girl, 5-year-old Michelle, in the newspaper.
“I think this is it,” she declares, inspired to do what she can to help.
