Movie Info

  • Breakthrough Is based on the truly inspirational story of one mother’s steadfast 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. From producer DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven) and adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (Seven Pounds) from Joyce Smith’s book, BREAKTHROUGH is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle.

Movie Story

Many Christian films are not that great, but this one is top-notch. With a strong true story & a B-level cast, everyone brings their A-game. In 2015 a middle schooler fell through the ice on a pond & suffered catastrophic injuries but amazingly survives. Powerful. Kleenex! A
