In the years after World War I, Moshe Goldenhirsch, the son of a rabbi in Prague, runs away from home to join a circus and becomes a magician performing as the Great Zabbatini. In alternating chapters, a second story line focuses on ten-year-old Max Cohn, whose parents are getting a divorce in 21st-century California. Max has discovered an old vinyl record of Zabbatini's greatest tricks and is sure the magician can perform a spell of eternal love to reunite his parents. The plot thickens with the impending Holocaust that is likely to destroy Zabbatini.
