A regular patron at a diner, Charlie Lang (Nicolas Cage), doesn't have enough money for a tip, so he tells his long-time waitress friend Yvonne (Briget Fonda) he'll pay double her tip or half of his winnings the next day. The next day he wins $4 million (21 annual payments) and keeps his promise to pay. Yvonne buys the diner and sets up a table in Charlie's name to feed those who cannot afford to pay. Things go wrong: Charlie's wife Muriel is fed up with his charitable contributions in the neighborhood, throws him out, asks for a divorce. That same night, Yvonne's husband demands $50,000 and she leaves. She and Charlie end up at the Plaza Hotel and get together.
