Macie is a working girl in Brooklyn, and Eddie is her boyfriend who is working to earn enough money for them to get married. They’re on the outs today, but Merton, a nerdy guy with a thing for Macie is on hand to tell Macie about his dream. Do his dreams really come true? They seem to. What things will Merton dream about? How about Horse races, and stock markets. Macie, Eddie, and the land lady all try to play it off, but might this be their chance to win big and make some money?
All the friends toss caution to the win, and try to use Merton’s new found gift to their advantage To get his creative, psychic juices flowing, they all pamper Mert, and even take him to a doctor, Frank Nelson, to see what can be done scientifically. In pampering their ticket to a payoff, they over do it just a little, and Merton see’s his big chance to put the moves on Macie. .
Merton’s dream has a way of coming true, but not in the way the gang all hoped it would. You know how these things work out, nobody hits it big, and they all find themselves no better off than before. But hey, they had fun while the adventure lasted.
