Joe is a middle-school band teacher whose life hasn't quite gone the way he expected. His true passion is jazz -- and he's good. But when he travels to another realm to help someone find their passion, he soon discovers what it means to have soul.
Tagline: Everybody has a soul. Joe Gardner is about to find his.
Trivia: Pixar chose to portray the film's main character as a musician, because they wanted a "profession the audience could root for," and settled for a musician after trying for a scientist, which "[didn't feel] so naturally pure as a musician's life." Peter Docter described Soul as "an exploration of: Where should your focus be? What are the things that, at the end of the day, are really going to be the important things that you look back on and go, 'I spent a worthy amount of my limited time on Earth worrying or focused on that'?"
