Synopsis

Jack McCall (Eddie Murphy) is a self-absorbed literary agent who uses his deceitful wordplay to secure big-money book deals. One day he propels his chatter on spiritual guru Dr. Sinja, at which point a tree magically sprouts in Jack’s backyard. He soon discovers that a leaf falls off for every word he speaks. If the leaves all fall the tree will die, and perhaps Jack with it. He attempts to resume his life, but keeping silent won’t be easy. Try entertaining at a children’s party for starters! This comedy-drama communicates a noble message about the value of stopping to listen to others.
