Ted Rofe returns to his home town of Tirralee because he is discontented in the city, despite his success there. The district is full of memories and he stops for the night near the tree where he and his childhood friend, Carol, used to make wishes. This time, he discovers, the tree grants wishes much faster than it used to do.
