About ‘Ordinary Angels’
“Ordinary Angels: The True Story of a Hairdresser Who Saved a Child’s Life” is inspired by the real-life account of Sharon Steves. Steves was a hairdresser who inspired her Kentucky community to step up for a widowed father and his sick daughter. The daughter, played by Skywalker Hughes, was critically ill and needed a liver transplant.
“Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels,” according to a description by Kingdom Story Company.
