Frank Lowry’s rise from teenage refugee during World War II to billionaire Chairman of the multinational Westfield Corporation is the inspirational story of perseverance, talent, and family devotion. The film traces Lowry's amazing personal story, his life’s work and his legacy. Along the way, he shows us the value of memory and rejects “the silence of the survivors” to illustrate the courage and strength that made him a success.
