Tuesdays With Morrie is based on Mitch Albom’s best-selling autobiographical story about his friendship with the renowned college professor Morrie Schwartz. The powerful and heart-warming book has sold more than fourteen million copies and was subsequently turned into an award-winning film starring Jack Lemmon.

During his college years, Mitch takes every course that charismatic sociology professor Morrie Schwartz offers. After graduation, he pledges to stay in touch with his mentor but soon enough gets caught up in the whirlwind of his rocketing career as a sports reporter.
Sixteen years pass before Mitch happens to catch Morrie’s appearance on a television program and learns that his old professor is battling the terrible neurological disease ALS. The career-driven journalist plans one last visit to soothe his conscience but finds himself, once again, under the spell of Morrie’s humour and wisdom. Their touching reunion develops into a weekly fixture in Mitch’s busy calendar and a delightful and moving last class in the meaning of life begins.
