"See a penny pick it up"… or "step on a crack"… We’ve all heard of collective examples of “magical thinking” or superstitious rituals we create during times of uncertainty or stress. This film explores personal, idiosyncratic examples—what fantasy rituals we create, what we dread will happen if we break our own rules, and why we tend to keep these rituals private. It includes historical examples, contemporary anecdotes, and analysis.
