There are eight million stories in the city of New York, or so the saying goes. Across the river in Weehawken New Jersey, there is a mix of people with a few stories of their own to tell. Weehawken is a 300-year-old town steeped in tradition and mystery and famous for its ghostly inhabitants.
On a recent Halloween night four couples of differing backgrounds bring eight very different sets of hopes and aspirations to the dinner table of a Weehawken neighborhood party. When Rick (Harry Connick, Jr.) invites Arnita, a fortune teller (Tyne Daly), to the house for entertainment, everything is thrown into disarray with the prediction that "one couple will be finished by the end of the year."
The foundations of each of the couple's relationships are shaken and their futures called into question. Initially dismissing the prediction as the words of an eccentric, the characters, one by one, find themselves drawn in to the world of psychic/ palm reading and tarot cards in an attempt to establish their destinies.
