Hannibal Rising is a deep, dramatic inside look at the life which created Hannibal Lecter. It starts out with a young Hannibal, eight years old and his family during World War II, and tells the tale of how he became the cannibal that he was later depicted to be. Hannibal came from a very loving and normal family, which had a mother, father and a little sister. He loved and adored each member of his family, especially his little sister Mischa. During the war the family hid in their old farm house in the country where they believed that they were out of the way, and were safe. This was until some refuges of the Nazi party stumbled upon their home and took it over. First the parents were murdered right in front of the home. Next, as days went on, and food became scarce, the Nazis became Hannibal's worst nightmare, and later, he became theirs.

Once free of the farm house, and the cannibalistic men who killed his family, Hannibal sets out on a life long journey of pure revenge. Over time the boy grows up and as he does he hunts, plots, and seeks out each and every soldier that took part in his sisters death. Once he finds them he tortures them in very creative but specific ways, which allows them to see what they created first hand, by teaching him the way of the cannibal. While he grows up he resides with his aunt in her home, and they become very close. Lecters attacks are not just the soldiers who took his sister, but are meant for anyone who harms anyone that he loves. He attacks and kills the man who makes fun of his aunt. He also attends medical school where he gains his title as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, perfecting his craft and knife skills. As his revenge unfolds the FBI is on the hunt for him, and he leaves his aunts home.
