|Birthdays are usually times for celebrating life and its renewal. For one Basil Toback, his 18th birthday might as well have been a death knell. The family that he has always loved turned on him, he has been granted wishes that he does not want, and there is an impending sense of doom he can't escape. And he's already used up two wishes.
With the help of his childhood friend Paige Scott and a mysterious woman named Himitsu, Basil will travel through time and countries to find a solution for his fate ... and something worth wishing for.
