A sole adolescent boy is wandering through the neighborhood when he comes across a deserted playground. He sets up an area to play marbles by himself. He shoots his marbles one by one, reserving his prized marble for the big shot. It overshoots its target and falls through the grating to the storm sewer below. With a storm approaching, he has to abandon the thought of ever seeing that prized marble again as he runs home before the storm hits. As he prepares to wash the city grime off himself at home, the most miraculous of events happens.
