Synopsis
Three crooks place themselves in suspended animation for 200 years after stealing 150,000 dollars. Not only is the money still good in 2156, not only is 150,000 still a lot of money in 2156 (gasp!), but the only reason they run afoul of the law is that the suitcase of money they stole was counterfeit to begin with.
