When her 14-year-old son drowns in a lake, a faithful mother prays for him to come back from the brink of death and be healed.

This is based on the novel The Impossible by Joyce Smith and Ginger Kolbaba. The book itself draws inspiration from a 2015 real-life incident where teenager John Smith fell through a lake and had no pulse for 45 minutes. He made a miraculous recovery and plans to become a minister. Production on the film began in March 2018 and ran until May of that year.
