Sometimes people don’t think miracles happen in this day and age-but they actually do. A miracle that many people won’t believe, and a story everyone will never forget, is being showcased in the upcoming faith-inspired film, ‘Breakthrough.’ The drama is sharing the power of prayer, a mother’s love and a community rallying together in its newly released official trailer and poster.

20th Century Fox is set to release ‘Breakthrough’ in theaters Easter 2019. The movie was directed by Roxann Dawson, and adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte from Joyce Smith’s 2017 book, ‘The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother’s Faith and Her Child’s Resurrection.’ The biopic stars Chrissy Metz, Josh Lucas, Topher Grace, Mike Colter, Marcel Ruiz, Sam Trammell and Dennis Haysbert

The new film from producer DeVon Franklin (‘Miracles from Heaven,’ ‘The Star’) highlights impossible true story that provides a compelling argument that miracles are indeed still at work in the world today. ‘Breakthrough’ is based on the impossible true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds.

The following synopsis for ‘Breakthrough’ has been unveiled by 20th Century Fox:

When Joyce Smith’s (Metz) adopted son John (Ruiz) 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.
