Losing a bet to older friends, eight year-old Eloy steals a coin from an antiquities store.
From that day forward he tosses the coin whenever faced with a decision, basing his choices on heads or tails. Over time Eloy adds more support tools to struggle through life, relying more heavily on various forms of prognostication and augury.

As a young man, Eloy follows his secret love, the shopkeeper’s granddaughter, Soleil.
Relying on divination again, he constructs a letter for her with messages received in the fortune cookies he orders ritualistically every morning with his coffee.

Things come to a head when Eloy finds himself facing an emotional decision which he once again leaves up to a toss of the coin, which may finally expose him to the uncertainty of life and love.
