Drama: A child with a rare, incurable disease is miraculously cured, baffling medical professionals and her family.
Christy (JENNIFER GARNER) and Kevin Beam (MARTIN HENDERSON) live a good and honorable life in Texas. The happily married couple are parents to three beautiful daughters, operate a veterinary clinic that is expanding, and are faithful churchgoers under the kindly guidance of Pastor Scott (JOHN CARROLL LYNCH). But one night, their middle child, Anna (KYLIE ROGERS) wakes up with extreme stomach pain, and they rush her to the hospital. What follows are several weeks where Anna's condition is diagnosed as being everything from possible food poisoning to lactose intolerance.

Eventually, though, her pain becomes worse and her belly protrudes to an alarming size. She is finally and correctly diagnosed with a rare and incurable disease and referred to a pediatric specialist, Dr. Nurko (EUGENIO DERBEZ), in Boston. He puts her on a special drug treatment that he hopes will at least ease some of her symptoms and allow her to eat some food. While in Boston, they make friends with a quirky waitress named Angela (QUEEN LATIFAH), who keeps their spirits up. Meanwhile, Kevin has mortgaged the farm and his practice to the limit, and he has to shoulder most of the responsibilities of caring for their other two daughters, teenage Abbie (BRIGHTON SHARBINO) and youngster Adelynn (COURTNEY FANSLER).

Running low on funds, faith, and hope, the Beams ultimately come to learn that Dr. Nurko's long-shot treatment is not working, and so they stop the twice-monthly visits to Massachusetts. Then, one day, Abbie and Anna climb a tall tree outside the family house. A branch breaks, and Anna goes falling down the old tree's hollowed-out center. Remarkably, she is rescued by paramedics and firefighters with only a few scrapes and bruises. Even more remarkable, the fall seems to have reset her body and quite possibly cured her, something that no one inside or outside of the medical profession can explain.

Yes, especially Christian children who attend church on a regular or semi-regular basis. The three kids in the movie play very prominent roles.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
