Fueled by an imaginative idea that would work more magic in a shorter time frame, this unique fantasy-drama opens with a woman disposing of the body of her husband under a bridge one night. She drops an envelope with her address on it and a hobo sleeping under the bridge picks it up and reads the address. He is not an ordinary man, but has the capability of manipulating events and objects with the power of his mind. When he brings the envelope to the woman's house, she has a case of nerves and tries to pay him off for "finding" it -- knowing full well the danger the tramp poses since he might know what she did. Eventually, the homeless man works his way into her affections -- and soon it becomes clear who he really is.
