Six women of vastly different upbringings and backgrounds sign-up for a class in “Mediumship and Divination.” Each at a crossroads in their lives, each in search of something that’s missing. Will they find it among the spirits? Divination examines that inevitable point in a woman’s life – whatever age it may come – that past isn’t always prologue and the fortune shouldn’t always be foretold.
