Breakthrough is based on the true story of John Smith who fell through ice whilst playing with friends and is put in a coma. The film follows his parents Joyce (Chrissy Metz) and Brian (Josh Lucas) and how despite against all odds their son will not survive, their faith in God keeps their hope and belief alive that John will survive. The movie was filmed in Manitoba from March to May 2018. Locations for the 31-day shoot included Winnipeg, Selkirk, and Portage la Prairie.
