A Cadillac for Jesus is a spiritual comedy. Tommy Newman has come to southeast Florida to escape the cold and creditors back in New York. He is a tense, cynical, near-sighted Yankee liberal who likes loud rock music. Tommy works as a used car salesman at a small, rundown lot near Stuart. The owner of the business, Dwayne Ritchey, is a tobacco chewing, Confederate flag belt-buckle wearing good ol’ boy. Somehow Tommy and Dwayne manage to get along. Tommy meets a new customer, Jesus Centinni , a small, charismatic Latino man in his early twenties, who’s looking for a cheap Cadillac. Eventually Tommy hires him to help out at the car lot. Tommy soon sees some strange, unexplainable events happen around Jesus. Tommy struggles with his own cynical attitude about miracles, God, faith, and prayer, and wonders just who this Jesus Centinni really is.
