    • Synopsis
    • It is virtually impossible to find a satisfactory label for Karol Wojtyla. However the challenge has continued to fascinate journalists and historians both during his lifetime and after his death; all seek the definition that will go down in the history books: God’s Athlete,The Globetrotter Pope, Karol the Great...
      To encapsulate all this in an animated movie aimed mainly at a young audience means making precise choices about what to highlight in a life as dense with events as Karol Wojtyla’s.
      At the same time it is important to construct a powerful, moving story rather than a simple series of biographical anecdotes and tell also his rapport with young people that grew from simple excursions in the Polish mountains with a dozen students to World Youth Days attended by millions of young people.
