Based on the inspirational true story of one mother's unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith's adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John's recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. A reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle.

It was Saturday night, we found ourselves watching a different movie that was dysfunctional and "gritty" so we popped it out of the player and put in this gem! It is a delight and was such a great film to spend our evening with.

Based on a true story, the actual family are featured in the special features. It has a great talent team with Stephen Curry as a producer. It is not sugar coated or 'glossy feel-good', but rather real, honest and optimistic.

Very inspirational and spiritual movie about love, hope and miracles. The director and actors did an exceptional job on creating this film, especially actress Chrissy Metz as the mom.

This is a true story based on true events. It shows the power of a mother who has faith. This movie is a roller coaster ; there is joy, sadness, Defeat, fear and redemption. The son which of u can't tell by looking at them is adopted In which case this film also deals with this issue as well. It shows that people can not feel loved even when someone is squeezing them with love and how lonely they can still feel even with that love . It really is a heartfelt movie for the whole family and above all is true.

The title of the movie basically gave away how this movie would end, lol! There were some moving scenes, including the outside vigil you can see from the window of the hospital and tears coming from the boys face, the boy's locker filled with nasty notes after he got better from people who had loved ones who didn't get saved, and of course the last scene where people got up who were involved in the boy's recovery at the end.

Incredible story that is very well told. Acting is quite good by entire cast.
The song at the end is sung by Chrissy Metz.
I really liked this movie - I give it 5 stars.

A credible miracle medical case on film based on archived news stories from mainstream sources and first hand experiences of all involved (the Smiths, rescuers and medical teams) on the drowning and 100% recovery of a Missouri teenager, John Smith in 2015. Steve Curry of the Warriors is a co producer with Devon Franklin (producer of another faith based miracle - Miracles from Heaven 2016.) He also joins the actors and real-life people to give their thoughts in Special features: A tapestry of miracles: Making breakthrough.
