Dinner & a Movie

Based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering 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. This is a moving retelling of an incredible story of faith over fear when everything and everyone around you says to give up.  It shows us miracles still happen, and a powerful message of faith, hope, and love. 

BREAKTHROUGH is a reminder of the immense power of prayer, and the awesome power of God.
