Tina Harding is a successful estate agent with ambitious plans to open a chain of Harding Homes. Life at this juncture is just how she imagined it and the past gremlins of a failed actress have been well and truly conquered - she's a hard-nosed business woman through and through.Whilst accompanying her colleague, Chantelle, to a local psychic fayre Tina, receives a call from her sister announcing news of her engagement and the news forces her to look more closely at her own relationships; or lack of. Feeling despondent and in need of a little hope she bids farewell to Chantelle before rushing back for a secret reading. She is warned that her life is about to roller coaster out of control unless she learns to make and trust her own decisions. But Tina dismisses the reading as an act of foolish spontaneity and chooses to wipe the event clear from her mind. But after experiencing a series an unfortunate events, she tires of learning by her mistakes and embarks in a plethora of other psychic readings in an attempt to provide clarity, direction and a short cut to all things good; Her own life's SatNav. But as the bogus predictions come thick and fast, Tina finds herself immersed in a number of ridiculous situations as she subconsciously acts out these creatively manufactured forecasts. From still life art classes to helping disadvantaged children, she undergoes hilarious escapades, which in fact, take her further away from the truth and from what she should be. Confused, berated and at a cross roads, Tina decides enough is enough and makes a firm decision to throw herself back into acting for a final time, contrary to her thriving business being held together by an exhausted Chantelle. After all they told her to do it. Well, they said she was creative... Isn't that the same thing? In a complex world, clarity is sometimes easy to miss...............Crystal Balls.......gaze into the unknown.............
