What to expect: A reflective and philosophical journey. The story is a real life tale of a student who has built a career as a successful journalist and all of a sudden sees his old university Professor, his first real mentor and inspiration, on TV being interviewed as he’s fighting a deadly disease. Morrie Schwartz, his professor, on the other hand is on a mission to make the most of what remains of his life and after much deliberation thanks to not having kept in touch for 16 years, Mitch decides to go down and meet his Professor. And it’s then that Morrie teaches his last lesson, a lesson in life..
