Did You Know?


According to a video produced by the Davis School District, the school that serves as Cokeville Elementary School in the film is actually E. M. Whitesides Elementary School in Layton, Utah. According to Director T. C. Christensen, Whitesides was chosen due to some important structural and physical layout similarities to Cokeville Elementary, which are important to the story. Cokeville Elementary was not used because the Cokeville area doesn't have restaurants, hotels and other infrastructure necessary to support a cast and crew during filming. Christensen also attended Whitesides Elementary. See more »


Most of the kitchen appliances and landmarks featured in the film didn't exist in the 1980s. A lot of them are from the 21st century, such as Dorsey's refrigerator and the buildings. See more »

Enjoyed watching this movie, recommend
18 October 2015 | by nicolaskonstantinSee all my reviews

Enjoyed watching it and learning about the story of the school hostage crisis. I have not heard about this incident before. The movie is based on the real accounts of people who went through it, and if they say that they saw angels who helped them survive, I believe them. Those who make fun of the first-hand accounts should keep it to themselves. We had a school hostage crisis in Beslan in 2004 and it resulted in tragedy with lots of deaths. I liked what they said at the end of the movie, that there were lots of lepers in Jesus' day and not all of them got healed, but when one gets healed we should learn to recognize the hand of God. Fine movie, recommend!
