Based on the writings of internationally acclaimed philosopher Jacob Needleman, Time and the Soul follows the life of Elizabeth Marcotte, a young college student buckling under the weight of her own life. Struggling to balance a hectic work schedule with an impossible class schedule, Elizabeth suffers from the greatest scarcity of the modern age...Time. Unaware that this starvation of time is robbing her of meaningful experience in her life, she robotically stumbles from task to task and class to class, until a philosophy class (taught by Jacob Needleman) forces her to re-examine her life.
