In Competition

A mother and her daughter make a deal: knowing that cancer will soon tear them apart, they determine to use their remaining time together to live life to the fullest and create happy memories. They take turns expressing a wish which the other has to fulfill, no matter how unlikely or absurd it may be. Yet sad reality sometimes crashes like a harsh wave against the barrier of optimism they have so carefully erected.
