The Smiths live in suburban St. Louis, where not much goes on and everyone knows each other – which makes it so much worse when John falls through the ice and the world as they know it is turned upside-down. Roxann Dawson takes us on an emotional rollercoaster as she retells this true story, starring Chrissy Metz, Marcel Ruiz, and Topher Grace.

Read the full synopsis

Full film details

John Smith (Marcel Ruiz) is a talented basketball player from St. Charles. With the world at his feet and a family that values their faith, anything is possible. But when he starts playing on thin ice, tragedy ensues.

Falling through the ice, John finds himself trapped in the freezing water underneath the surface, unable to reach air, unable to breath. When the teenager is finally rescued, he’s been underwater for over 15 minutes…

Rushed to hospital, John remains in a comatose state, with almost all hope lost.

Time is running out for John, so when the doctors confess they are unable to do any more for him, it looks like the end is in sight. Unlikely that he will last the night, his parents, Joyce (Chrissy Metz) and Brian (Josh Lucas), must turn to a higher power.

With help from Pastor Jason (Topher Grace), the desperate trio plea to the town for their thoughts and prayers. John shouldn’t last the night, but with a little faith, he just might…

Roxann Dawson brings us the heart-wrenching true story of hope, belief and faith. This emotional rollercoaster stars Chrissy Metz (Sierra Burgess is a Loser), Topher Grace (BlacKKKlansman), and up-and-coming Marcel Ruiz (One Day at a Time).
