Kids can survive anything, they say. Oliver,
aged twelve, has a missing father in Africa, his mother has had
a breakdown, and he is recovering from chemo. He is sent to live
with his only relative. On a foggy day, one bald boy, with his
cat, Flop, arrives at his Grandma's house at the water's edge
in Greenwich. Oliver discovers to his horror that his Grandma,
a famous psychic, hates cats. Her housekeeper, Lena loathes kids,
and silent Justine seems to hate everyone. Add crazy Harriet,
who has seen every fortune teller in London; Aura, a mysterious,
aspiring beautiful actress and Bullet, the homeless kid with a
very mean streak, trouble can't be far behind. When Oliver and
Justine find a beautiful dog with it's throat cut washed up on
the riverbank, Oliver feels a strange connection to this dead
animal and so begins his own induction into a psychic world.
