Synopsis The summer of 1986. Halley's comet races around the earth for the first time in 76 years. Three losers in a small town, believing that what they are seeing is your run-of-the-mill shooting star, each make a wish for a better life. But when their wishes are granted too literally, the neighbourhood plunges into total chaos. For the first time they'll have to believe in themselves if they are to save their town from disaster.
