About

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.
