Synopsis: Phone-in psychic Delia Bird (aka Destiny Ortega) lives with her 12-year-old, streetwise son Lazaro in a former brothel in the Hispanic barrio of a decaying industrial city in New Jersey. The widow of a Puerto Rican “saint” and the daughter of one of the town’s leading citizens, Delia is a fey, childlike woman who is waiting for The One, the man fate has in store for her. Will Appleyard, a history professor who came to Wallingford to do research for his doctorate, thinks he may qualify. Meanwhile, he lives with Delia’s mother in a crumbling replica of a medieval castle, where he discovers papers that explain the origin of the curse placed on his family by a Bird of an earlier generation. Though he boasts about his sense of honor and his record of public service, Delia’s father Nestor has sponsored a real-estate developer who deals in fraud and arson.
