What’s Your Wish? (2015) is RadioActive Studios’ entry for the San Jose 48 Hour Film Project, 2015. A drama, it is loosely based on the short science fiction novel Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. A mother follows her guide through a desolate, urban landscape to a “forbidden zone”. In quantum energy, she places hopes to cure her ill daughter.
On a dry creek in Livermore, CA, the film paints a bleak picture where a wish brings as much danger and hope. Under the bright sun, our heroine and mother follows her guide (the “stalker”) deep into the “forbidden zone” where your deepest desires come true.
Screened at the Camera 12 Cinemas on August 19, 2015 in San Jose, CA and is the studio’s 17th 48-Hour Film Project.
