Cris Johnson is in a Las Vegas diner. He looks at the clock above the counter. He checks his own watch, and then glances out the door. He is looking for someone, but she doesn't show. He appears to be haunted by visions of a young woman, probably connected to the diner. Cris is a clairvoyant living under an assumed name, Frank Cadillac, in Las Vegas. He has a minor magic show at one of the hotels, but he makes his living at "low stakes" gambling against the casinos. He manages to stay beneath the radar, never revealing his gift: the ability to see two minutes into his own future.
