A comedy about life, love and lottery! Bill, an unemployed man in his thirties, intends spending his last five dollars on a lotto ticket when he discovers a way of making money, literally, using an amazing new photocopying machine that turns out perfect reproductions.
Bill is about to spend his last five dollars on a lottery ticket - a chance to make some dreams come true - when he discovers a way of, literally, making money!
He works hard, lovingly hand-crafting five dollar notes until he's made enough to satisfy all his needs. And he retires - contented.
The lovely Nicky introduces Bill to a totally different set of values. Her needs are simple. She just wants...more. And suddenly Bill is hard at work again. Making money.
He just can't win.
