A group of successful, middle-aged friends from Tel-Aviv finds their lives unexpectedly disrupted when a clairvoyant arrives at their small gathering, and begins making predictions about their futures as parents. Ran has a high-paying job with a prominent investment firm. He's married to Dana, the mother of their two children. Dana, meanwhile, plays in a string quartet with Keren, wife to high-powered lawyer Leon. Unaware that her gynecologist friend David is a homosexual in a long-term relationship with his partner Gal, Dana attempts to forge a love connection between David and Ran's secretary Daniella. Meanwhile, Ran ponders his mother's request to assist her suicide as the ravaging effects of Alzheimer's disease make her life increasingly unbearable, and Dana learns she is pregnant with another man's child. As Keren and Leon ponder the prospect of starting a family, David begins to weight his relationship with Gal against his increasing desire to become a father, and begins to realize that lonely Daniella may be his last chance at having a traditional family.
