In Seven Spots on the Sun, a Latin-American village has been without its doctor for 18 months.

Yet, when a mysterious plague ravages the countryside, he discovers he has the miraculous power to heal with the touch of his hand.
The cast will feature Flora Diaz (Fox's Gotham), Peter Jay Fernandez (All the Way), Flor De Liz Perez (CBS's The Good Wife), Claudia Acosta (The Architecture of Becoming), Sean Carvajal (Tell Hector I Miss Him), Rey Lucas (Exit Strategy), Cesar Rosado (Dolphins and Sharks), and Socorro Santiago (Kingdom Come).
The creative team includes Arnulfo Maldonado (scenic design), Amith Chandrashaker (lighting design), Tei Blow (sound design), and Fabian Aguilar (costume design).
