Finally found! Whoo hoo
9 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

Aired on Showtime as part of the 30 Minute Movie series in the early 90's. This short film is set in a place where people used credit cards and traded time off their life instead of money. The main characters are a young clever dealer and his sister who squanders all her time. A wealthy woman takes an interest in the kid and shows him some of the rules aren't as rigid as they are told, such as the one where you can go to some place only once in your life and make one single request. I think he gives time to his mother when he makes his request earlier in the story?
