The faith-based film ‘Breakthrough' is a true story about one mother's unwavering love. ‘This Is Us’ actress Chrissy Metz stars as Joyce Smith, a mother who is tested after tragedy.
At first, life is good for The Smith family but when their adopted son, John, falls through an icy lake, everything changes (read the real news story HERE).
John spent nearly 15 minutes in the water and all hope seemed to be lost. In fact, he appeared lifeless after he was brought to the surface and doctors doubted if he would even make it through the night. But Joyce knew that there was a force greater than anything on this earth.
"He is a fighter. So I need you to be the best for John and you just let God do the rest."
