New movie depicts story of boy who 'saw heaven' It’s a New York Times bestseller and a much-anticipated movie — the story of a young boy who claims he went to heaven. “Heaven Is for Real” tells the story of Colton Burpo, who had a near-death experience when he was three years old that may have taken him into the very arms of Jesus. Following emergency surgery, Colton began recounting events and people that were seemingly impossible for him to know about.

This is the official trailer for the 2014 release of director Randall Wallace’s “Heaven Is for Real.” Watch the video, read the book and see for yourself.
