Personalities collide as Ruth—a professor of nineteenth century literature—attempts to guide Simone—one of her failing students. While Ruth is stuck living in century-old literature, Simone tries to argue that living in the present is the only way to live. Perhaps in this case, the student is teaching the professor.
