Television news reporter Lanie Kerrigan (Jolie) thinks her life is perfect - - perfect job, perfect apartment, perfect wardrobe, perfect boyfriend. But her "perfect" world starts unravelling after a homeless street seer (Shalhoub) tells Lanie that she leads a meaningless existence, and will die the following week. When the savant's other predictions come true, Lanie begins to re-examine her life and priorities, all in a whirlwind one-week period. As if things weren't crazy enough for Lanie, romantic sparks fly as she reluctantly teams with a cameraman (Burns) with whom she has long been at odds.
