Sophie meets a kindred spirit in Roxie, a young girl with an inoperable brain tumor and the impossible wish to meet Bigfoot. As if the task at hand isn't hard enough, Sophie must contend with meddling from Derrick, a fame-hungry classmate born into privilege from her graduate classes. As time grows short and pressures mount, Sophie must align herself with Derrick in order to see Roxie's wish granted, even if not in the way she may have hoped for. Unknown to everyone is the possibility that there may be magic in the wish of a dying girl, and a truth beyond belief.
