A motorcycle cop is still haunted by the traumatic separation from his father when he was a boy. After surviving a near-fatal accident and being framed for police brutality, his whole world falls apart. Unexpectedly, he finds hope in the shape of a terminally ill boy, who reunites him with his father after 28 years. To honor the boy, he creates the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
WISH MAN is based on the life of Frank Shankwitz – creator of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Since its creation in 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted wishes of more than 450,000 children in 50 countries worldwide. On average, a wish is granted every 38 seconds. It is the world’s largest wish-granting organization.
