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.

Trivia

T.C. Christensen required actor Nathan Stevens, who played David Young, not to interact with the children on set until filming. That way their reactions to Young were genuine and real. See more »

Great Christian Film, don't miss this one
13 June 2015 | by kkrogueSee all my reviews

This is one of the best Christian films I have seen. It is on par with God's Not Dead and Heaven is for Real. I remember when this event actually happened and had heard about some of the events of the movie but I was struck by the incredible story and the intense scenes as well as the emotional impact this movie had on me. I don't know when I have been so impacted by a movie. A must see. I have seen other movies by T.C. Christensen but nothing he has done has been anything like this. The entire audience was riveted to their seats and I watched many people leave very emotional. I am going to track down the book and see if I can also research the story more thoroughly. I loved seeing the many children, now grown up, who appeared during the credits.
