A touching story about a father’s fight against all odds to attain the three wishes of his boy and of his own fourth wish.

When the chips are down he’s got the guts to get in there and have a go. He’s taking on the world - for the sake of his son. He has to! He has three very important things to achieve and if it means bucking the system, he’ll do it to win.
