Is your soul weighing you down?
A high-tech company extracts, deep-freezes and stores peoples souls. But beware of soul-trafficking.
Paul’s world is turned upside down when a Russian soul mule, responsible for transporting people’s souls to and from Russia, steals Paul’s soul for the wife of her boss and executive of the Russian Soul Storage who aspires to be an actress.
She receives Paul’s soul, though, believing it to be the soul of Al Pacino. Her acting and happiness improve. Nina, the mule who carried Paul's soul, becomes curious about him, and eventually reveals the whereabouts of his soul, helping him to get it back. As the pair investigate the soul of Olga the poet, which he had ‘rented’ during this period, they learn that she committed suicide after not being able to get it back after selling it.
Paul and Nina get his soul back, and after looking into it through the use of special goggles to reassociate himself to it, he returns to New York a happier man. Nina’s soul is found, but Paul is told that it is unrecoverable due to the residues of souls that she has carried.
