Pope Francis. The Jorge Bergoglio Story.


The story of Jorge Maria Bergoglio before becoming Francis. The childhood spent playing football on the streets of the Flores neighborhood in Buenos Aires, the strong bond with his grandmother Rosa, chemistry studies and his mother Regina’s shattered dream of him becoming a doctor. The history of the future Pope Francis, who becomes a priest three days before he turned 33 and chooses to become "shepherd of souls". A journey into the life of Bergoglio, suspended between Argentina's drama of the disappeared and the vital impulse of the new Rome of his pontificate. With him, the revolution has already come into the heart.
