Storyline Heading
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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This fact-based drama is also a faith-centered one, and unlike a lot of Christian films this features a number of familiar mainstream actors such as Chrissy Metz, Topher Grace, Mike Colter, and Dennis Haysbert. While most families will find this safe viewing and there is little in the way of what would be considered objectionable content, scenes of teens in precarious situations and life or death danger could be of some concern to parents.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average It's a strange, almost exclusionary view of how people respond to difficulty. This view only offers sympathy towards those with the "right" kind of faith. For everyone else, it offers pity, disdain or impatience... ... less a story than it is a sermon, aimed directly at the choir and nobody else.

NY Post Full Review
Poor It's a harrowing tale that deserves a much better movie than this insipid junk. It's OK that the movie concludes that John was saved by a miracle from God, but the actors practically wink up to the sky every time something good happens. No complexity. It's a very serious, heartfelt story told with the corniest execution imaginable.
