BREAKTHROUGH is a US drama in which a family turns to its religious faith when, after an accident on a frozen lake, they are told their son's death is inevitable.

Threat and horror

The film contains sustained passages of moderate threat covering the plight of a group of teenagers as they fall through ice into freezing water, the efforts to rescue them, the desperate attempts of doctors to revive one of the victims who appears to die. The film covers the subsequent sense of hopelessness after he is resuscitated but is placed in an induced coma. The sense of threat is intensified by the distress of the boy's family and friends as they hope, against the odds, for his survival.

There is mild bad language in the film. More information about this film and all other films with a BBFC age rating is available for grown ups on the main BBFC website and the free to download BBFC app.
