Heaven is for Real Movie Synopsis

During an emergency appendectomy operation, Colton Burpo, only four years old at the time, claimed he'd been to heaven and sat on Jesus' lap. At first no one pays attention to the little boy, but when he reveals details of what happened while he was having an out-of-body experience, including describing what his parents were doing during his surgery and where they were, his family has second thoughts about his claims.

Colton talks about his great-grandfather, whom he's never met, and identifies him through a photo he's never seen. He also tells his parents he saw his other sister, who was miscarried at two months, saying she was happy to see him in Heaven. However, not everyone believes Colton, and it creates stress for the family.

A film adaptation of the novel by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent.

  Great acting and amazing story!! One of the better

  Went to this movie as we knew one of the extras in the movie and it was filmed in and around Selkirk. Excellent made for television movie. Found it a little "choppy" as a movie; great story and family movie. Nice to not hear any swearing and not see any violence. Movies can be made without such!

  Heaven is for real. Jesus's love is real! So worth watching!
