A professional gymnast named Dan Millman (Scott Mechlowicz) is haunted by nightmares of a shattered leg, coupled with the presence of a faceless janitor.  One morning while jogging to relieve his tension, Dan encounters an old man (Nick Nolte) who seems to understand the athlete's woes and personality before he even utters a word.


The man never reveals his legal name, but Dan dubs him Socrates due to his astounding wisdom.  Although Socrates never discusses himself or his past, Dan's daily meetings with him result in a philosophical transformation, even amidst a potentially debilitating tragedy.
