Storyline

John and Alice are struggling, both financially and romantically. John works long hours as a shipping clerk for little pay and Alice is waiting impatiently for them to have enough money for in vitro. They have their secrets, their indiscretions, but they are in love. When Allice buys a brass teapot at an antique store, at first it bothers John. He has been preaching spending caps, nothing frivolous. However, the little pot soon comes in handy when their coffeemaker quits working, joining the ranks of most of the appliances in their rundown home. They use the teapot to make coffee only once before they realize the brass antique has a much more valuable function. Throuch accidents and some basic reasoning, Alice and John soon realize that the teapot provides them with money anytime they physically injure themselves. A burned wrist is worth a two dollar bill. A hand slammed in the trunk of their car...A handful of quarters. It is Alice who first sees this as a gift, a solution to their ... Written by Ramaa Mosley
