FULL DESCRIPTION

What would you be willing to do to have your deepest, darkest wishes become reality?

When five cousins reunite at their deceased grandmother's estate to clear up her belongings, their familial bonds and moral codes are put to the test by an obscure boardgame titled "I WISH I WISH (Deseo Deseo)." Out of curiosity, they decide to play the innocent looking game. The rules seem simple: each player may ask for 3 wishes that will be fulfilled after completing a challenge presented by the game. If they carry it out they will have what they desire; otherwise, someone in their lives will be forced to pay a terrible price. For those who have chosen not to fulfill the challenge, the game releases a vicious demonic entity to enforce an ironic and violent punishment. They soon discover that the only way to survive is to keep playing, even if it means only one will make it out alive.

Filmed in Mexico, this thrilling debut feature by director Eduardo M. Clorio is a suspenseful and gripping modern installment in the tradition of deal-with-the-devil stories like Faust and Hellraiser, torture tales like SAW, and be-careful-what-you-wish-for shockers like The Monkey's Paw.
