The comic book is an adaptation of Rod Serling's script of the 1960 series of the same title, with the same storyline with the series.


Marsha is interested in a gold thimble being shown on display in a department store and planning to buy it, before finding herself stuck in a weird situation with the shop operator and the clerks. It is later revealed that she is actually a mannequin that was given chance to be a human, and now she had to return back to the mannequin form and let the others have their chance.

The latter scene shows that she accepted her fate and preparing to return back as a mannequin, while the others (including the shop operator and the clerks) who are actually mannequins, giving their wishes to the next mannequin who has her turn as a human next. The final panels shows Marsha, now a mannequin, standing on display.
