    It's 1969, and holed up in a grimy tenement building in New York's Lower East Side is a travelling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the date they will die. Four siblings, too young for what they are about to hear, sneak out to hear their fortunes. We then follow the intertwined paths the siblings take over the course of five decades and, in particular, how they choose to live with the supposed knowledge the fortune-teller gave them that day. This is a story about life, mortality and the choices we make.

    Wenn du wüsstest, an welchem Tag du stirbst: Wie würdest du leben? New York 1969: die Geschwister Simon, Klara, Daniel und Varya legen ihr Taschengeld zusammen und suchen eine Wahrsagerin auf. Die kann angeblich den Tag des Todes vorhersagen. Aufgebracht, ungläubig, schulterzuckend reagieren die Kinder auf die Prophezeiung - und doch wird das Wissen ihr Leben beeinflussen. Während Simon sein Glück im liberalen San Francisco der 80er Jahre findet und Klara sich ihrer Leidenschaft Magie verschreibt, suchen Daniel als Arzt und Varya als Wissenschaftlerin sicheren Boden. Und die Antwort auf die Frage, ob die Wahrsagerin recht behalten würde.
