A nice story in Anything Is Possible is unfortunately hoisted on a ridiculous premise. It unfortunately colors the whole film.
Young Ethan Bortnick is the child of Jonathan Bennett and Lacey Chabert, a military family with Chabert still in the service and deployed on a relief mission
to Japan which has been hit with a tsunami. Chabert goes missing and social
services comes knocking and the kid learns that Bennett is not his biological
father. Social services wants to take Bortnick away and put him in foster care.
Unless someone made a complaint and no one has, no way social services would get involved. They have enough work without looking for cases.
In any event the kid is lucky to find homeless veteran David Haines on the
street to look out for him. And his musical talents on the piano and keyboard
come in handy in trying to save an orphanage. All in the best Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland 'let's put on a show' tradition.
Anything Is Possible is a nice family film, but believe me it wouldn't happen this way in real life.
