BREAKTHROUGH is based on the inspirational true story of one mother's unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith's adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John's recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. From producer DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven) and adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (Seven Pounds) from Joyce Smith's own book, BREAKTHROUGH is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle.

  • Topher Grace

    Topher GracePastor Jason Noble

    Topher Grace was born Christopher John Grace in New York City, New York, to Pat, a schoolmaster's assistant, and John Grace, an executive. He was raised in Darien, Connecticut. He attended boarding school in New Hampshire for two years, where he began his acting career in such musicals as "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" and "The Pirates of Penzance." He also tried his first shot at directing with a choose-your-own-adventure-style movie starring his classmates. He hated being called Chris in school, so he changed it to Topher as time went on. He attended New Hampshire's Brewster Academy and the University of Southern California. Grace dropped out of USC to start his show business career in That '70s Show (1998) at age 20. He was cast in that show because the show's creators, Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner, saw him act in a high-school play--their daughter attended same high school. Apart from school plays, Grace had absolutely no acting experience before landing the role of Eric Forman.

  • LISA DURUPT

    LISA DURUPTPaula Noble

    Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Lisa Durupt has established herself as fierce, funny, and fearless talent in film and television. A talented ice hockey player growing up, she earned a scholarship to an American university until surgery postponed her arrival. On a whim, she registered at the University of Winnipeg and after attending a local performance of A Chorus Line for her theatre class, Lisa traded sports for the arts and went on to study theatre at the University of Winnipeg and the Canadian College of Performing Arts. Lisa's natural athleticism gave her a natural entry into the film industry as a dancer and stunt performer. Following early appearances in films like Shall We Dance and The Lazarus Project, Lisa was cast by Canadian comedy veteran Mark McKinney on the series, Less Than Kind, as the temperamental Shandra. Lisa's unfiltered energy and gift for ad-libbing over four seasons of the show was highlighted by a Gemini Award nomination in 2010 for Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Program or Series and a Leo Award nomination for Best Performance in a Music, Comedy, or Variety Program or Series in 2013. After a string of appearances across film and television projects such as The Pastor's Wife, The Color of Rain, Run for Your Life, and Supernatural, Lisa Durupt won her most substantial cinematic role thus far as the overly competitive sister of Sonja Bennett in Preggoland, a performance that earned Lisa her second Leo Award nomination in 2015 for Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Motion Picture. While she continues to work steadily on film, Lisa is presently enjoying another steady run on television as Andrea Todd - sister to Alison Sweeney's Hannah Swensen - on Murder She Baked, the Hallmark Channel screen adaptations of the best-selling mystery novel series of the same name.
