How to use PS+ cloud save to restore broken save file on PS4?

I got caught in a glitch while playing Firewatch. An event didn’t trigger, so I can’t progress in the game. Unfortunately, if I quit and restart, it just puts me back in the same position with the same problem due to the game only having one save file and auto-saving. I was thinking I might be able to use the save that was backed up to the cloud with my PS+ membership. How do I use the cloud save to replace the save on the PS4 system?
You can try restoring the saved progress by going to Settings > Application Saved Data Management > Saved Data in Online Storage > Download to System Storage and selecting the specific game data.
