The Cokeville Miracle is a 2015 movie that tells the true story of a miracle that happened on May 16, 1986, in the small town of Cokeville, Wyoming. The movie is about a group of children and their teacher who were held hostage in a school by a man and his wife, who were former students of the school. The movie stars Jasen Wade as David Young, a former police officer and survivor of the hostage situation who becomes the lead investigator of the case. Sarah Kent plays his wife Doris Young, who is also a survivor of the tragedy. Kimball Stinger plays the role of the couple's son, who was a student at the school at the time of the incident.

The Cokeville Miracle begins with the husband and wife team, played by Bruce Graham and Emily Wadley, walking into the Cokeville Elementary School with a bomb and guns. They take the entire school hostage, including over 150 children and teachers. The couple demand a ransom of two million dollars for each child, which is a total of 306 million dollars.

The movie is divided into three acts. The first act focuses on the events leading up to the hostage situation. We see flashbacks of the couple's troubled past, including losing their son to illness, which contributes to their motive for the incident.

The second act is the hostage situation itself. The couple rounds up all the children and teachers into one classroom, which they have rigged with explosives. The hostages are terrified, and tensions are high as they try to figure out how to escape.

It is during this second act that the Cokeville Miracle occurs. The hostages are miraculously saved when a bomb goes off, but instead of killing everyone, it miraculously only injures the couple. The survivors of the incident claim to have received divine intervention from heavenly beings, who helped them survive the bomb blast.

The movie's third act explores the aftermath of the miraculous event. It shows how the survivors deal with their trauma and how the town comes together to heal. It also focuses on David Young's investigation of the incident and the evidence he uncovers that supports the claim of divine intervention.

The Cokeville Miracle is a powerful and emotional retelling of a miraculous event that touched the lives of many people. It is a story of faith, courage, and community that proves that miracles can happen in our darkest moments. The movie is an uplifting and inspiring reminder that hope and faith can overcome even the most challenging circumstances.

The Cokeville Miracle is a 2015 mystery with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5.
