A skilled literary agent's deceitful techniques teach him a lesson when he uses them to try to get a book deal out of a spiritual guru.

Jack McCall, a star literary agent blessed with a "gift of gab" that permits him to capably hard-sell book deals to various clients, finds a Bodhi tree in his backyard after attempting to use his tactics on a New Age guru who sees right through him. After attempting to remove the tree and finding that he experiences first-hand whatever it feels, Jack figures out that the strange plant sheds a leaf for each word he speaks, forcing him to make the most of a now-limited allotment of words before he potentially dies.
