Plot summary

What is Soul movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Soul" movie plot summary.

Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx), a middle school music teacher from New York City, dreams of a career in jazz, even though his mother Libba (Phylicia Rashad) objects to it, fearing for his financial security. One day, Joe learns of an opening in the band of jazz legend Dorothea Williams (Angela Bassett) and auditions for it. Impressed with Joe's piano playing, Dorothea offers him a chance to perform later that night. As Joe happily heads off to prepare for the show, he falls down a manhole.
Joe finds himself as a soul heading into the "Great Beyond". Unwilling to die before his big break, he tries to escape but ends up in the "Great Before", where soul counselors - all named Jerry - prepare unborn souls for life. Each soul has a badge which, once filled out with traits, grants passage to Earth. Mistaken for an instructor, Joe is assigned to train 22 (Tina Fey), a cynical soul who has remained in the Great Before for millennia and sees no point in living on Earth. She needs to find her "spark" to complete her badge and agrees to give it to Joe so that he can return home. Joe tries to assist 22 in finding a passion, but the attempts prove futile. With no other options, they head for "the zone", an area people enter when their passion sets them into a euphoric trance; it also houses the lost souls who become obsessed and broken. Moonwind (Graham Norton), the captain of a psychedelic galleon bearing a troupe of "mystics without borders", helps rescue the lost souls. The mystics agree to help Joe, who has been in a coma since his fall.
Joe excitedly hops back to Earth but accidentally brings 22 along, resulting in 22 entering his body and Joe ending up in a therapy cat. Initially frightened, 22 settles into Joe's body and finds great enjoyment in the little things in life. She holds deep and poignant conversations with Connie (Cora Champommier), a student who planned to quit the school band but who changes her mind after losing herself in a passionate, impromptu trombone solo; Dez (Donnell Rawlings), who wanted to become a veterinarian but is now enjoying his career as a barber; and Libba, who reconciles with Joe and finally accepts her son's passion for music. Meanwhile, Terry (Rachel House), an accountant designated to counting souls headed to the Great Beyond, goes to Earth to look for the missing Joe.
