Synopsis

A butcher from New York under the witness protection program in Arizona, murders his philandering wife, cuts her into seven pieces and buries her in the New Mexico desert. A blind woman trips over the dead wife's manicured hand and in the fall her sight is restored. She takes the hand to a local priest, who displays it in the church as a sacred relic, which draws thousands of miracle-seeking tourists to the sleepy southwestern town.
