Althea, Cressida and Phoebe have been friends since their schooldays. Now a successful artist, Cressida has never married. Phoebe has a career as an actress, but she has always given priority to her married lover, and never achieved stardom. Only Althea ever married, swept off her feet by businessman Geoffrey Lewis.
As is their custom every summer, the Lewises are preparing for their annual fête. Althea is delighted when Phoebe suggests they might like to engage the services of a fortune teller, Madame Tokoly. What seems like an excellent addition to the fête turns out to be unnerving and unwelcome when the fortune teller's dire predictions for Geoffrey's future prove uncannily accurate, and his life becomes increasingly endangered...
