Often interviewed on CNN, Oprah, and NBC, world renowned trend forecaster and best-selling author Gerald Celente is suddenly blackballed by the news media. The controversial Gerald experiences an absolute fall from grace that takes him to a dark, confusing and unfamiliar place. The only person he has around him is his Zizi, or ‘Aunt’ in Italian. Zizi is a humble, sage-like woman who embodies some of the best of what her fading generation had to offer. Over small talk and an impressive home cooked dinner, Gerald’s mood turns darker. In addition to the demise of his career, his wife abandoned him.
