Aaron Hammond is forced to return home when his father suddenly dies. While dealing with grief and trying to support his mother, Kate, he finds an urn in his father's belongings. He soon finds that the object is capable of making wishes and desires come true. What he doesn't know is that the price for this may be too high to pay. Aaron can’t catch a break. Having a Podunk law school on his résumé booked him a hasty exit from a hopeless job interview. $3000 in unpaid rent bought new locks on his apartment door. Making a bad day worse, Aaron’s ex-girlfriend Lisa calls with terrible news. Aaron’s father just died, and his grieving mother Kate needs him to come home. Do people actually say, “the prodigal son returns” in real life? They certainly say it in films constructed out of clichés, which describes by-the-book thriller “The Final Wish” to a T.
