The Plot: The true story of the devastating 2004 tsunami that consumed the coast of Phuket, Thailand -- and how one family survived it – stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor as a young couple enjoying their winter vacation in tropical paradise with their three sons. But on the day after Christmas, their relaxing holiday becomes an exercise in terror and survival when their beachside hotel is pummeled by an extraordinary, unexpected tsunami.
Why It's a Must-See: A harrowing, disturbing tale that tracks just what happens when a close family and tens of thousands of strangers must grapple with the mayhem and aftermath of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time, The Impossible is boosted by an Oscar-worthy performance by Naomi Watts and a story that focuses on the human heart over special-effects spectacle.
