Here is the plot for Irish Wish from Netflix: "When the love of her life gets engaged to her best friend, Maddie puts her feelings aside to be a bridesmaid at their wedding in Ireland. Days before the pair are set to marry, Maddie makes a spontaneous wish for true love and finds herself in an alternate reality where a chance encounter shows her that sometimes you need to be careful who you wish for. With her dream seeming to come true, Maddie soon realizes that her real soulmate is someone else entirely."

Speaking about the film to Netflix Tudum, Lohan explained: "It’s a nice story of luck and love and confidence." She said her character Maddie has "been ghost writing for the writer she works for and she’s hopelessly in love with him, and she’s expecting him to love her back."
