  §  Dramatis Personae ____ (m), _________; Janet (f), a therapist; ____ (f), _________.

  §  Synopsis “Janet, a gifted past-life regression therapist, has deep insight into the lifetimes we have all lived for centuries but has made a mess of her own. Then she unexpectedly runs into a reincarnated soul at a restaurant.

  §  Comment “Is it karma? Or is someone trying to tell her something? Have we lived before? Will we live again? Will we still be waiting for our lunch to arrive? Past Lives answers all these questions. It also describes what happens when you don’t notice that your best friend is in love with you.”

  §  Themes karma, reincarnation.
