Three Wishes 三个愿望

Greed rules it all in this mystery drama which explores the spell of three wishes which seems impossible to break. Yao Zong (Thomas Ong), an assistant horse trainer who is not doing well in his career, is inadvertently sucked into its realm. Despite being bullied at work, he puts up a brave front daily to preserve the respect from his family. But one night, in a drunken stupor, he bumps into an old woman who grants him three wishes. He is skeptical but uses them anyway when he faces difficulties in his life. When he realises that the wishes do indeed come true, he wants more. But this time, he has to pay a price for the next three wishes. Despite the warning, he uses them anyway and turns his family into instant millionaires from winning the lottery. But he pays with a high price – his daughter loses her legs as a result. Greed is then exemplified by his son, who uses the last wish to wish for three more wishes. In what seems like a never-ending cycle, Yao Zong looks desperately for the next person to take the three wishes away from him.
