Summary
Paul Giamatti stars as himself, agonizing over his interpretation of Anton Chekhov's Classic Play, "Uncle Vanya." Paralyzed by anxiety, he stumbles upon a solution via a New Yorker article about a high-tech company promising to alleviate suffering by extracting souls.. Giamatti enlists their service -- only to discover that his soul is the shape and size of a chickpea. His intention is to reinstate it once he survives the performance but complications ensue when a mysterious, soul-trafficking "mule" borrows Giamatti's stored soul for an ambitious, but unfortunately talentless, Russian soap-opera actress.. This unique comedy was featured at the Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for three Independent Spirit Awards
