Three Wishes

A mother, Polly, and her 11-year-old daughter, Iris, sit at a bus stop. The game is simple; wish for anything your heart desires, each wish has to outdo the previous wish. Iris’ first wish is obvious: a shiny new convertible. This dream is interrupted when Polly is pulled into a crowd of paparazzi and fans. Iris is then transported to a beach dock, indicating a change of wish. Her mother reveals that this is one of her happiest memories together.
