Medr, File and Zeki are three old friends: well past their prime (and they know it), they still behave like irresponsible teenagers, with little grasp on reality. When one inherits a shop, they decide to open a pizzeria, but it quickly becomes clear that this idea was doomed to fail from the start. In desperate need of a business boost, they come up with an attractive offer: customers order a pizza and get a free wish: “whatever makes them happy”. Old yet not quite grown up, Medr, File and Zeki lead lives that alternate between their erstwhile hopes and dreams, that they cling to with quirky optimism, and the disappointing facts that years of mundane daily life has brought them. Perhaps running the pizzeria that fulfils wishes is the ideal tonic to put the trio straight – or it could be just another hare-brained scheme. The three main characters seem to live in a world apart, and so does the film itself. A whimsical pace weaves through this late coming-of-age tale that can be as bitter as it is cheerful. The cinematography and the performances capture a perfect balance between both, in a story that’s ultimately inspiring and heart-warming.
