Diana is a modern woman working in fashion and starting out on a new relationship. But she had a death sign in her chart during a prediction when she was younger and ever since then she has been convinced that she will die young. 

She seeks the help of Rodica, a white witch holding black magic at bay.

With an expensive set of spells to break the original curse, Rodica is able to appease the fairies as well as her taste in fast cars.

But Rodica has problems of her own. Officials are so concerned about the popularity of witches in Romania that they have imposed a ban on witchcraft advertising on national television channels.

Rodica's brother, a bit of a wizard himself, is leading the fight against the TV regulator's ruling, thus honouring a legendary occult lineage.
