Mrs. Miller is an elderly widow living a quiet and lonely existence in her Manhattan apartment. One day, during a rare journey outside, she meets a precocious little girl who later appears at her door demanding to come in. As the story unfolds, little Miriam's behavior becomes more shocking and impertinent as Mrs. Miller becomes increasingly frightened by her. 'Miriam' is a tale of a woman whose mundane existence becomes exciting and disturbing as she discovers the truth about 'Miriam.'
Miriam, a pretty Hasidic teenager, is shocked to discover that she is pregnant. Her horrified parents attempt to hide her away from scandal in their tight-knit religious community. But they soon discover that they are facing greater challenges than they could have ever imagined. Miriam insists that she cannot explain the pregnancy -- as she is a virgin! When medical tests support her claim, Miriam's family is swept into a brewing religious controversy as a representative from the Catholic Church comes to investigate this apparent miracle. Caught between competing religious claims over her body, Miriam seeks to escape -- only to discover that there are dark figures who are hunting her down, intent on preventing her baby from ever being born. Miriam endures terrible loss in trying to protect her unborn child, and is rescued from a terrible fate by the unlikeliest of allies. But when her child is born, she faces the final test of faith.
An elderly woman makes the acquaintance of a strange and disturbed little girl in this haunting film based on the Truman Capote short story 'Miriam.'
