Praying the Hours tells the journey of the Traveling Man from this life into the next as he visits friends with whom he has surprising, unresolved business. As he crosses over, he realizes that eternity is not something that happens after you die but flows like a river under the surface of ordinary life.
The Praying the Hours movie is an epic narrative feature that portrays the hours of prayer as if they were characters in the story of a man's life. It is a unique way to reflect on the ancient practice observed by all the Abrahamic traditions—Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
