Film Summary:

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of a four-year-old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who says he experienced Heaven during emergency surgery. He talked about looking down to see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. In Heaven, Colton met his miscarried sister whom no one ever had told him about and his great-grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born. He shared impossible-to-know details about each. Colton went on to describe the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “reaaally big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us. Told by Colton’s father often in Colton’s own words, but there are people who will not believe Colton or his family, the disarmingly simple message is that heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and to be ready … there is a coming last battle.
