This epic story follows the life of Karol Wojtyla, a Polish Roman Catholic who ascends the throne of St. Peter as Pope John Paul II. As a young boy, Karol is a bright student. Archbishop Sapieha recognizes the very special and moving qualities in Karol and encourages him to consider the priesthood. Although determined to study Polish literature, Karol eventually turns to the church. He becomes an ordained priest and studies in Italy, France, and Belgium. Torn by fear and repression in post-Stalin Easter Europe, Karol becomes a poisonous thorn in the communists' side. His deep reverence and commitment to his Catholic faith return him to Poland as Pope John Paul II.
