Sixteen years after graduation, workaholic journalist Mitch Albom finds out that his favorite college professor, Morrie Schwartz, is battling Lou Gehrig’s Disease. When Mitch is reunited with Morrie, what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage, a renewed friendship and a last class in the meaning of life.

After having abandoned his dreams of becoming a famous musician, he is disgusted by his desire for financial success and material wealth, though neither fill the void and unhappiness he feels.

Each Tuesday, he learns from Morrie, his that he needs to reassess his life, and to value love over money, and happiness over success.
