In "Heaven is for Real," following an emergency surgery, which doctors did not expect him to survive, four-year-old boy Colton Burpo (Connor Corum) shares with his family that during the time he was in surgery, he visited heaven. At first, his parents, pastor Todd Burpo (Greg Kinnear) and wife Sonja (Kelly Reilly) are hesitant to believe him but Colton seems to know details that he couldn't possibly know if his story was made up.
