Synopsis:
Edgar was a small, ungifted, simple man, who could not see himself being anything but a wage-slave all of his life, so he decided to do something about it, becoming a petty thief to earn extra money. One day, he visits an out-of-the-way shop and is shown glass bottles containing live tiny people inside of it, who are actually Genii. For $50 million, the bottle and any Genie is his to make whatever living from it he can. When Edgar tells the shop owner that he only has $5, the owner agrees and sells him the bottled Genie anyway......much to his disdain in the end!
