Synopsis
Brad Horton has stolen $150,000 in marked money. He jumps from a train into some woods looking for a place to bury the money until it is safe to spend. He trips and falls into an old well. He wishes he never left the train and suddenly finds himself back there. Leaving the train again he finds his way back to the well where a stone tells him that wishes cost a nickel. He wishes for a million dollars and uses this to buy up the well and surrounding land. Officials visit and want to know the source of his wealth. He makes a wish to escape but the nickel is fake and he is arrested.
