If you could know the exact date of your death, would you want to find out? And, if you knew the date of your death, how would you live your life?
It's 1969 in New York City, and the four Gold children have gotten word of a fortune teller capable of telling anyone the day they will die. Varya, the eldest, followed by Daniel, Klara, and Simon decide to seek out their fortunes. What they learn that day will shape the rest of their lives.
Simon, the youngest of the siblings, takes off for San Francisco with his older sister Klara before finishing high school. He discovers a passion for dance, and he is finally able to feel free to be who he really is. Klara is the dreamer of the family. She's had an obsession with magic from an early age, and this follows her through the years. We see her travel from New York, to San Francisco with Simon, then eventually ending up in Las Vegas, a magician at last. Daniel, the eldest son, is hostile towards his younger siblings, for leaving himself and his older sister to care for their mother. He pursues a more grounded career and becomes a military doctor. Varya, like Daniel, feels resentment towards Simon and Klara. She becomes a scientist, focusing on longevity.
