Paris, at the end of the 30s. Laura (Natalie Portman) and Kate Barlow (Lily-Rose Depp) are two young sister fortune tellers, just finishing a European tour. Exhausted by the tour and faced with the competition of new practices, they meet André Korben (Emmanuel S alinger), a big cinema producer. He is a controversial visionary; the owner of the largest cinema studio in France, using the la test American techniques to keep his company ahead of the pack. Out of a desire to test his own scepticism and a keen sense of curiosity, Korben invites the two sisters to hold a private séance: the result turns his world upside down. He is so dis turbed that he offers them a contract to try out ambitious experiments on film. He t ells himself that cinema must innovate and surprise to evolve, that he can make the first truly authentic ghost film. But Laura quickly gathers that Korben has other, more secret reasons for having employed them. Together they end up forming a strange family as the onset of World War II approaches.
