The story of the man who would become Pope.
1930’s Poland. 10-year-old Karol Wojtyla has dreams, many dreams. One by one they are shattered. First by the loss of his beloved mother and brother. Then by the outbreak of the war and the death-fleeing human exodus which ensued. And finally by the first signs of the Jewish persecution. These events will mark the start of Karol’s long journey from worker to poet and teacher. A journey full of encounters that eventually leads him to become a priest and finally in 1978 to become the man we all now know, a man who has marked an era, a man who has made history as Pope John Paul II.
