COMMENTS: 'MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN" IS BASED ON A TRUE STORY OF ANNA, A 12 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER OF KEVIN AND CHRISTY BEAM. ANNA SUFFERS FROM AN INCURABLE INTESTINE DISEASE, WHICH RESULTED IN HER HAVING TO DEPEND ON FEEDING TUBES. AFTER SURVIVING A NEAR-DEATH FALL INTO A HALLOW OF A VERY LONG TREE, ANNA IS ALSO MIRACULALOUSLY CURED FROM HER DISEASE.

THE MATERIAL CONTAINS COMPLEX AND MATURE THEMES WHICH FOCUS ON ISSUES OF FAITH, BELIEF, DEALING WITH INCURABLE DISEASE, FORGIVENESS, FAMILY VALUES, PRAYER, DEVINE INTERVENTION AND SPIRITUALITY. THE MATERIAL IS PRESENTED WITHIN A FAITH-BASED CONTEXT. THERE IS A POSITIVE MESSAGE OF FAITH AND DEVINE INTERVENTION, AS WE WITNESS ANNA'S MIRACULOUS SURVIVAL FROM A FALL INTO A TREE HOLLOW. HER PERMANENT HEALING FROM THE INCURABLE DISEASE, AS WELL AS THE RESTORATION OF PRAYER AND FAITH TO BELIEVERS AND A NON-BELIEVER WHOSE 10 YEAR OLD SICKLY DAUGHTER DIED PEACEFULLY AFTER INTERACTING WITH ANNA WHILST IN HOSPITAL.

THE MATERIAL CONTAINS NO CLASSIFIABLE ELEMENTS. THE CONTENT IS HANDLED SENSITIVELY WITH LOW THREAT AND MENACE, BUT MITIGATED BY THE OVERALL POSITIVE MESSAGE OF FAITH, PRAYER AND BELIEVE IN DIVINE INTERVENTION. FROM AN OBJECTIVE PERSPECTIVE, THE THEMES ARE UNLIKELY TO CAUSE MORAL HARM OR DISTRESS CHILDREN OF ANY AGE. PARENTAL GUIDANCE IS REQUIAGERED TO ENABLE THE PARENT TO PROVIDE CONTEXT AND ASSURANCE TO THEIR CHILDREN, AS WELL AS ENCOURAGE DIALOGUE ON THE COMPLEX THEMES.
