Set in Burleson, Texas, in 2011, the film centers on a 10-year-old girl named Anna (Kylie Rogers), daughter of Christy Bem (Jennifer Garner). Anna is suffering from a pseudo-obstruction motility disorder and is unable to eat, using feeding tubes for nutrition. During this ordeal Anna and her mother befriend a local Massachusetts resident.
One day, she has a near-death experience, after falling three stories into the hollow of a tree and suffering only scratches. When she is subsequently examined at Boston Children’s Hospital, no evidence of the chronic illness is found. When Anna is later talking to her parents, she claims she went to heaven and talked to God, who sent her back to Earth.
Miracles from Heaven is a 2016 American Christian drama film directed by Patricia Riggen and written by Randy Brown.

The film stars Jennifer Garner, Kylie Rogers, Martin Henderson, John Carroll Lynch, Eugenio Derbez and Queen Latifah. Principal photography began in Atlanta, Georgia in July 2015. The film was released on March 16, 2016 by Columbia Pictures.
