More about Snåsamannens sang* (The Song of the Snåsa Man)

At the webpage of The Norwegian Touring Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Snåsamannens sang* (The song of the Snåsa Man):

All of us that live in this country have an opinion of the Snåsa Man. We don't quite know what to think. Can he heal when someone calls to ask his help? Does he see things the rest of us can't grasp? For some life is just what we see and feel here and now. For others, there is more between heaven and earth.

(...)

A young girl is incurably ill. To raise money for the illness she suffers from (SIC), she and her very involved girlfriend have embarked on a hiking trip through Norway. In one of the treks they have gotten the Norwegian minister of health and care services and his life guard to joint hem. Eventually, as they get further away from people and a storm starts to build, sharply opposing world views are at stake (SIC). Must the young girl accept her destiny, or should she try other methods to get back to health? Should they walk by the Snåsa Man?

Do we need miracles to understand our lives?
