Lanie does puff pieces on the nightly news. Ready to take on the national news, her boss suggests she hone her skills with ace cameraman Pete. Her comfortable, shallow existence begins to change the moment she and Pete do a story on Prophet Jack, a soothsayer who spouts unusually accurate predictions to passers-by in exchange for spare change. He predicts that Lanie will not get her cushy promotion, in fact, he says she'll die within a week. When Jack's other prophecies start coming true, Lanie starts living each day as if it were her last
