Imagine waking one day, you can’t speak or write. If you do so, you will die. Then, what will you do to communicate with others on a daily basic?
In this video, Jack McCall, played by Eddie Murphy, finds an unusual tree in his yard after an encounter with a spiritual guru. After discovering that with each word he speaks or writes, a leaf drops off of the tree, Jack refuses to speak at all, as doing so will keep the tree, and him, alive. He now just entered Starbucks and tries to order a coffee without saying a word or writing anything down.
