RICH MAN POOR MAN (Cinema)




One day, an old farmer man named Adam received a money order from his son, Saul, who was working in London. The money order was for 100 pounds. The next day he woke up early to take a 3-hour bus to the city to change the money order into 100 pounds. It all started when the bank official asked him for his Identity Card. He didnt have an Identity Card. He went to the Ministry of Interior. The official there asked him for 3 photos of himself. He went to the photographer just to pay him 2.5 pounds for NO photos. Adam hit the photographer 3 times and had to go to the police station. There the police official asked him for his Identity Card...
Will Adam get his 100 pounds?
The moral of this story is that: "the rich dont pick on the poor, the rich just pick on the uneducated."
