Based on actual events, the movie focuses on the love and friendship surrounding Kennedy, played by Tatum Chiniquy, and her 16 years on earth. The film, which premiered in theaters last summer, also stars Jasen Wade (“17 Miracles” and “The Cokeville Miracle”) and Heather Beers as Kennedy's parents, Jason and Heather Hansen.

“It’s so great that people will now be able to own and watch this powerful story that brings encouragement into their lives," Christensen said in a news release. Kennedy’s story, and how her short life affected all those around her, is truly a miracle.”
