Morrie Schiller is a new student at an evangelical college in Milwaukee with philosophy as his major. Try though he may, he just doesn't fit into the Christian campus scene. The girl he loves sees him only as a ‘brother’, and he’s in the crossfire as radical fundamentalists rage against the school with extremist views. Add to mix, he's haunted by an obsession to become a Roman Catholic.
Enter Jack Joplin, a mysterious stranger, who lures Morrie to embrace a spurious brand of philosophy, which promises to "transcend beyond religious conventions". Morrie takes the bait and is catapulted into Faust-like adventures that go beyond his wildest dreams.
Time was when he only wanted to meet a nice Christian girl and settle down as an ordinary evangelical church-goer. However, the Socratic dictum: Know Thyself seems to be his sacred calling. Spiritual maturity comes only by passing through the refiner’s fire.
