Is Blue Miracle based on a true story?
Blue Miracle is based on the real story of an orphanage in Mexico named Casa Hogar, that was hit hard by the Hurricane Odile in 2014 and the guardians were worried about their kids. The boys who have never ever touched a fishing rope entered the Bisbee’s Black & Blue Tournament to make their days better.
That was the biggest fishing tournament at that time and to your surprise, the boys won 385 Marlin in the competition and donated their winnings. In an attempt to keep the tournament and help the local economy, Bisbee’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Fund generated a Cab Relief Fund.
A person paid the entry fee of $5000 for a team that agreed to hire a local boat and Casa Hogar were now able to enter the tournament. Moreover, the boys from Casa Hogar won the competition and donated their whole cash prize worth $258,325 to the Casa Hogar organization. The money was used to setup a girls’ program and in improving the facilities of the orphanage.
Blue Miracle is currently streaming on Netflix since it has been released on 27 May 2021.
