Synopsis

Xie Junya is a teenage girl who possesses the innate ability to see the dead, a problem that has troubled her for a long time. She sought help at a temple, but the problem was not solved. Instead, many devotees gather to ask her questions about their deceased loved ones and even winning lottery numbers. Her work as a psychic leaves her with no time to practice baseball. What she really cares about is whether a guy in her school’s baseball team likes her. The boy she has a crush on invites Junya to his birthday party. However, there is a long line of people waiting at the temple for her advice. How will she choose between love and her sacred mission?

谢君雅是个热爱棒球的高中女生,因天生有阴阳眼而不堪其扰。去道场修行不但没获改善,反受到信众崇拜求诊:上至祖先风水,下至乐透明牌。灵媒工作让君雅没了时间练球,尽管红包收得再多,对於大人的求问,这位神算内心在意的却是:「棒球队的学长到底喜不喜欢我呢?」在学长生日这天,举行了庆生派对。想跟学长告白的君雅却有一大排的信众等著她指引人生方向。面对青春期的烦恼与传统信仰的重担,她该如何抉择?
