Hope

Any additional comments?

A short story that goes straight to the solar plexus.
Unconditionally love, sacrifice and the power of hope are so well played by the voice of Rob Goll.

Hope Over Tragedy

It is a story of tragedy and hope, about love and loyalty and survival and sacrifice and it’s beautiful.

It was indeed.
