Raised by her "woe-is-me" grandmother, young Rae becomes interested in magic and starts working as a fortune-teller at school functions and women's group meetings, where she tells people things they don't want to hear. Later, Rae rises to fame as a world-class conjuror who sprinkles her spells with a little bit of Yiddish.
