On May 16, 1986, in the small, ranching community of Cokeville, Wy, David and Doris Young took an elementary school hostage for several hours before detonating a bomb inside a single classroom that held every teacher and student in the school. In the wake of the madness, Ron Hartley, whose children were inside the classroom, must fight his skepticism and unbelief as he hears eye witness accounts from the students of miraculous, heavenly intervention during the crisis. When tragedy strikes... what do you see? Written by Excel Entertainment.

Great Movie
15 October 2015 | by jfharbis1See all my reviews

If i watch a movie about basketball... and i do not like basketball... then I complain about the movie having basketball in it. Then I should be considered a retarded IMDb movie critic...

A lot of the reviews here seem to put this movie in a bad light, AKA "Not a good movie". These bad reviews smell A lot like a anti-Christian agenda. Do not allow them to tarnish this film with false and inaccurate reviews.

This movie is based on a true story back in 1986. These people are real people, walking the streets right now. It was not a classroom of Christians, in a Christian school, living in jesusville.

This movie gave me a glimpse of the horror they experienced and their attempt to understand it. Great movie if you LIKE this genre (fireproof, God's not dead, heaven is real).
