“I am Gabriel” is a story of miracles, hope, and the power of prayer.

A couple, Ellen (played by Baughman) and Joe Murphy (played by Scott), find a boy named Gabe (played by Casalegno) walking along a dusty road--alone in the middle of nowhere. Little did anyone know that he would be the answer to the community’s prayers.
