Blue Miracle: What's the Story?

Blue Miracle is the true story of Casa Hogar, an orphanage teetering on the edge of foreclosure in Baja, Mexico. The story follows caretaker Omar Venegas, who devoted his life to raising the young boys with integrity, but after Hurricane Odile blows through, Casa Hogar is in danger of closing for good. The boys’ only hope is to win the prize money from the famed Bisbee’s Black & Blue fishing tournament.

Ben Howard, producer of this story, shared his thoughts about it:

“With everything against them, On the Line [Blue Miracle] is the remarkable true story of how Omar and his boys managed to pull together and achieve what seemed like the impossible and their incredible story will no doubt win the hearts of audiences around the world.”

Is the film plot different than the true story?
