When a boy from Ireland finds a little man dragging a chest of gold across a forest floor, he mistakes him for a leprechaun. He is granted wishes, but all the wishes go terribly wrong, so wrong that the two of them end up on the moon chased by a crocodile. They blast off and return to a crash landing on earth, where one comes to a sad ending and the other learns about friendship and courage.
