Paul and Anne White visit the Bahamas to see their son Howard race in the Grand Prix. Before the race, a gypsy woman gives Paul a monkey's paw that according to legend can grant its bearer three wishes. Paul is desperate for money and wishes for cash. Unfortunately, he gets the money in the form of an insurance settlement when his son is killed in a fiery crash during the race. Anne is struck with grief and forces Paul to wish his son back to life. Paul does so, but soon regrets it when he realizes what condition his son will be in. He uses the third wish to send his son back to the grave. (TV.com)
