Based on a beloved teacher’s most popular lesson, The Priority List is “a beautiful, heartfelt, and ultimately important story about love, kinship, gratitude, and miracles” (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love).

Steve Carrell is set to produce and star in the film adaptation of David Menasche’s inspiring story of his battle with brain cancer and his journey to truly live in the present.

At thirty-four years old, David Menasche was diagnosed with brain cancer. Six years later and fifteen years after he began teaching, Menasche suffered a catastrophic seizure that began to steal his vision, memories, mobility—and perhaps most tragically of all—his ability to continue teaching.

But teaching is something David Menasche can’t quit. Undaunted by the difficult road ahead of him, he decided to end his treatments and make life his classroom. Cancer had taken his past and would certainly, at some point, take his future, but he wouldn't allow it to take his present. He put out a message on Facebook, and within hours of posting his plan to travel the country, former students now living in more than fifty cities replied with offers to help and couches to sleep on.

The lasting lessons he collected on his journey make up The Priority List, an “inspirational and enlightening” (Ron Clark, American educator) story of learning, love, and legacy that challenges us to ask: What truly matters in life?
