Rising Hope tells the story of six teens who, through loss, find hope as they fight against the Germans when their Scout troops join forces with the Underground Army during the 1944 Warsaw Rising.
Looking back, eighteen-year-old Tadzio realizes that it all began when, on September 8, 1939, his father abandoned their family. That same day, his Scoutmaster challenged Tadzio and his friends to give their all for Poland. At first, thirteen-year-old Tadzio said no. Five years later, the Germans still occupy Poland. Having lost close family members, Tadzio rises to the challenge. Even though the odds appear insurmountable, he still has hope. This is how it began.
