When John Smith (Marcel Ruiz), the 14-year-old son of Joyce Smith (Chrissy Metz), falls through the ice on a frozen lake in Missouri, despite almost 30 minutes of CPR, he is pronounced dead. As John remains motionless for almost an hour in the hospital, Joyce prays at her son’s bedside and is stunned when she discovers his heart has begun to beat again.

With the help of the town’s new hip pastor Jason Noble (Topher Grace), Joyce struggles to understand this unbelievable phenomenon and the power of faith that brought her son back to her once again.

Based on Joyce Smith's 2017 memoir, The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother’s Faith and Her Child’s Resurrection.

  • 5 stars "Excellent, inspiring, so lifting of Our Lord, the power of God and prayer and believing God!!! Notice the other reviews are either HIGH or LOW...just like people’s responses to Jesus Christ—those who live in darkness vs. those who llive in The Light...or those who are searching for the TRUTH. Jesus didn't come to save “The Righteous.” A GREAT MOVIE! Well worth every penny!!!!!"
  • 1 star "It's called the Mammalian Diving Reflex where subjects have survived without oxygen for as much as an hr in freezing water. I'd be reluctant to say this is super natural..."
  • 1 star "poor dialogue, worn out them and over acted"
