Something doesn’t feel right. Eva reluctantly asks her best friend Mar to confirm her worst fear: a lump in her right breast. Her mother deceased and her father absent, Eva’s only real family is Mar, who vows to be at her side through every stage of Eva’s cancer battle. At her first round of treatment, Eva meets Carmen, who’s unfortunately an old pro at the chemo game. The women become fast friends, spending their treatment days hooked up to IVs, side by side. Carmen, whose refreshing perspective brings some much-needed optimism to their circumstances, proposes a plan. After their last treatment, Eva, Carmen, and Mar will set off on a trip, each with a list of three things they’ve always wanted to do to distract themselves from the agonizing waiting period for their test results. Hilarious, heart wrenching, and purely genuine, WISHLIST captures the beautiful story of making the most of today to survive the scariest tomorrow, and the unshakable power of female friendships. (In Spanish with subtitles) — A.B.
