After the death in 2004 of American theater actor and monologist Spalding Gray, director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) pieced together a narrative of Gray's life to create the documentary AND EVERYTHING IS GOING FINE.

In essence, this hilarious, moving, and revealing film has become Gray's final monologue
