George Clooney and Ewan McGregor star in this offbeat comedy with Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey playing supporting roles. The film is based loosely on Jon Ronson's non-fiction book about the US military's attempts to use parapsychology against enemies. Its plot follows a Michigan journalist (McGregor) as he travels to Kuwait. There he meets Cassady (Clooney), who takes him on a mission to Iraq. Along the way he learns about the New Earth Army, which tries to use psychic powers for military purposes.
