As Tom Walker walks in the woods he spots an odd figure lurking in the shadows weilding an axe.
Whilst talking with this new comer he is offered a deal......."if you work for me I shall make you rich beyond your dreams." Tom takes this deal and thus begins his new Life in the city to cheat people out of money for none other than the Devil himself.
Tom goes into the city a new man and announces his loan business to any and all.The city being as that is was suddenly hit by poverty the townsfolk flock in not knowing of the scam that lies a head.
As Tom grows old and more wise he is brought to the realization that although he is set in this life what about the eternal one? He begins to go to church and confesses most when he is in the wrong. Although he still cheats the townsfolk.
One day as Tom is in the office with a heated client the client yells " Why do you cheat me for i have no more money"! Tom replies without thinking " If i am cheating you MAY THE DEVIL TAKE ME NOW!!!!!!
Than almost as summoned, Tom's old partner, the devil himself shows up to take Tom as he was told.
