The first trailer for the upcoming film “Breakthrough,” which tells the miraculous real-life story of a mother and son who show the true power of prayer, has been released, inspiring millions around the globe.
“This is Us” star Chrissy Metz plays Joyce Smith, a Christian mother devastated after her son, John (played by Marcel Ruiz), falls through an icy Missouri lake, nearly losing his life.
“Please God, send your Holy Spirit to save my son,” she prays as her son fights for his life in a hospital bed.
From “Miracles from Heaven” producer DeVon Franklin, “Breakthrough” is based on Joyce’s book, The Impossible. After being rescued from the lake, John lay lifeless for more than an hour in a hospital bed. Yet, his mother refused to lose faith and fervently prayed for a miracle. Her prayers were answered as John’s heart suddenly began to beat again. Just a few short days after the accident, John walked out of the hospital – completely healed.
The trailer also depicts the powerful moment Joyce tells her son’s physician, “Be the best for John, let God do the rest.” John’s atheist first responder is also shown questioning if God may be real, as “a voice” told him where to find John in the ice cold water.
During a previous interview with The Gospel Herald, Joyce revealed that shortly before the accident, she had been participating in the Believing God Bible study by Beth Moore, which hinges on the statement that “I believe God is who He says He is, and I believe He can do what He says He can do.”
