Synopsis:
The big book comes to the big screen. Looking in her mailbox one morning, fourteen-year-old schoolgirl Sophie Amundsen discovers a letter from someone named Alberto Knox. "What is the most important thing in life?", asks Knox. The letter is the beginning of an extraordinary tour through the history of Western philosophy from the trial of Socrates to the Russian Revolution. In series of brilliantly entertaining adventures through time and space, Alberto Knox opens Sophie's mind to the fundamental questions that philosophers have been asking since the dawn of civilisation.
