What is the Rise Documentary?

Two women and two babies embark on a journey to learn from women who rise up to the challenges of a modern world. On a road trip travelling over 2,000kms in five days, from Geelong to the Sunshine Coast, entrepreneurs Jess Jones and Bridget Wood were inspired, challenged and ultimately empowered by their crazy adventure and the women they connected with, and interviewed, on the road - from booming regional country centres, to thriving coastal spots, these are women living lives by design, willing to believe in their dreams, and seeing the challenges as part of the grand plan of life.
