Shut Eye takes a darkly comedic look at the underground world of Los Angeles storefront psychics and the organized crime syndicate that runs them. The story revolves around a disgruntled player in the organization who finds his cynical world view challenged when he starts to experience visions that may or may not be real.
Charlie Haverford is a failed magician who now works as a psychic/conman overseeing a number of fortune telling parlors in Los Angeles. Employed for many years by a Romani kingpin, Charlie's life is stifled and going nowhere until a blow to the head jars him into a new mindset and makes him question everything he has ever believed. When his wife urges him to break out on his own, he's careful – because he knows that one wrong move will land him in a shallow grave.
With his visions intensifying, Charlie turns to neurologist Dr. Nora White for some unorthodox help. Linda's relationship with a female hypnotist deepens, while Fonso's temper stirs up bad blood with a competing South Bay crime family.
