Leigh, a 40-something who works in a hardware store, has lived in Delphi, Indiana all her life. She is fed up with her circumstances but doesn't know how to change things. She's got a 20-something boyfriend Jim, who is a baker, but Leigh is uneasy about their age difference and uncertain of their future. While wrestling with her demons, the Oracle of Delphi magically appears on Leigh's fireplace mantle. Phoebe, the Oracle, has been banished from ancient Greece by the god Apollo for becoming pregnant. At the next full moon, Phoebe will be transported back to ancient Greece where she will give birth and be forced to sacrifice her baby. The Oracle's presence becomes a catalyst for change in the lives of all three characters, as the worlds of Phoebe, Leigh, and Jim collide in ways that are both comic and profound.
