Harold Crick is an IRS auditor who's been content to live his life alone.Â Harold's life completely changes when he begins to hear his life narrated by a woman with a British accent and a bigger vocabulary than his.
The woman tells him that he is going to die so he seeks the help of Professor Jules Hilbert to help him figure out who this narrator is and hopefully in time.
Dr. Jules Hilbert: The thing to determine conclusively is whether you are in a comedy or a tragedy. Have you met anyone who simply might loathe the very core of you? Harold Crick: I'm an IRS agent. Everyone hates me. Dr. Jules Hilbert: Well, that sounds like a comedy!
