Whenever a large scale event occurs, countless stories come into existence from those involved. They widely vary in their content, their background, and their future. When one is adapted, whether it be a book, movie, or something else, examples of ordinary people in extraordinary situations are widely distributed, usually with the hope that a message will be taken from it. The Impossible tells the story of a family involved in the devastating December 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean that killed over 200,000 people. The result is a very emotional and mostly effective drama.
