Begonia grisea, help me save it.

As best I can figure out I have a Begonia grisea as a house plant. I daughter flipped the pot over and the plant is in rough shape. Is it possible to reroot the plant with rooting hormone? Any tips? Any suggestions?
How could I go about saving a portion of the plant as only a small part of the plant is attched to the original roots?

Thanks so much for your help..

Sorry no one responded quickly. This forum doesn't always have the traffic to produce quick answers. Maybe/hopefully you got an answer on another forum?

I don't have "the" answer for you, but I think there is a high likelihood of your plant regrowing from the root system if you replanted that. I guess there's no need to contemplate ways to propagate the stems at this late time. Let us know your results.
