Cassie is a farmer’s daughter with a fortune teller gifts.  She tries to use her psychic gift to help the people she loves and mostly fails. Her genius neighbour Athena offers her help, except Athena is a Greek goddess reincarnate. It might be Australia in the 1980’s but the remaining Greek gods still think humans are their playthings.
