Maximus Dillinger struggles, like many teens, with his own identity. A known troublemaker, he's also a devoted son to his single mother. His future, what little of it he can see, looks hopeless.

Needing to meet the requirements of a history project, Maximus finds himself flipping through the class of '41 yearbook. He chooses to interview graduates from the book, setting him on a path that ends with a deeper understanding of life and a personal transformation.

The school alumni Maximus interviews are members of the Greatest Generation. Some are war heroes. Others are women who lost sons and husbands in battle. Their heart-wrenching stories unearth Maximus's grief over the loss of his father, forcing him to confront his own fears and propelling him towards manhood, love, and a powerful emotional reconciliation with a long absent family member.

A deeply moving coming-of-age tale, Maximus transcends generations. The past's powerful events continue to affect the world and have the power to change a young life for the better. The Greatest Generation is ready to tell its stories. Are you, like Maximus, ready to listen?
