Wishes can come true. If you believe. And when your mother is dying, you have to believe in something.
Rules suck. They really suck when your mother is dying and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Rule 1: Keep the house clean. Dad says Mom doesn’t need germs floating around.
Rule 2: Cook good food. Dad says Mom needs healthy food to keep her strength.
Rule 3: Take care of your little brother. Dad says babysitting takes worry off Mom.
Since her mother became ill, Holly's world has turned into nightly reruns of Rule-O-Rama. It takes a different spin when a spunky old Wish Granter named Grace shows up and tells Holly she’s been granted three wishes. Holly’s first wish is for everything to return to the way it was before all the rules appeared, so she wishes for her mother to get well.
Bzzt! Sorry, that’s against the rules. What?
Yeah, rules suck all right. But, Holly isn’t going to let a bunch of pesky rules stand in her way when the stakes are so high. Backed into a corner with rules blocking her every move, Holly has to figure a way around them — even if it means gambling her own life to get what she wants.
