Stuart Pendrick - AKA 'The All Seeing Stupendo' - is an aging, alcoholic psychic, resigned to spending the rest of his career performing to half empty theatres in grotty seaside resorts, much to the dismay of his long suffering agent Gerald. But when would be robbers Eva and Dom follow him home one evening, intent on breaking in to find his rumoured secret stash of cash, the lives of all four are changed in ways not even a clairvoyant could have predicted.

Because Pendrick is not the easy mark they were expecting; a lifetime performing the mystic arts means he knows a thing or two about misdirection and manipulation and maybe... just maybe, his psychic powers extend further than the stage of the local fleapit theatre.

Then there's the mysterious Eva, why is she more interested in what Pendrick was doing in Great Yarmouth thirty five years ago, than on getting her hands on his loot? And her sidekick Dom has worries of his own too, all this talk of the paranormal is starting to dredge up some very disturbing memories from his childhood Not to mention, Gerald has his own plans for the All Seeing Stupendo.

As the night rolls on, events slowly begin to spiral out of control, curses are cast, an unexpected guest arrives and voices speak from beyond the grave... but what is genuine and what is trickery? Can supernatural forces really be at work? By dawn, Pendrick, Gerald, Eva and Dom will all have their darkest secrets revealed , but which of them will still be alive to see the sun rise?
