Legend however has it that wishes are always strangely fulfilled here.

And for three unsuspicious revelers, this is about to become one unforgettable, enchanted weekend.

It will take nothing more than twenty minutes of my life. As a public defender, I’m more than convinced that I can handle it.

And once the time is over, I’ll never see him again for the rest of my life.

Fate however has other plans in mind.
