Praying the Hours


"Praying The Hours" uses story to reconsider the ancient practice of fixed-hour prayer observed by the Abrahamic faith traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The film tells the story of a day by imagining each prayer as a character. The Traveling Man is hit by a car. During the time it takes for him to cross over from this life to the next, he visits eight people—seeing them with new eyes. He learns that eternity is not something that happens after you die, but a river that flows under the surface of ordinary life.
