True wealth is gratitude

13 Nov

There is huge irony in the title of the movie I have in development “Lucky & Rich.” Lucky is a hard living Czech street girl and Rich is a homeless New Zealand bum. In her life she has not been “Lucky” and he has not been “Rich.”

I once heard a story about one of the wealthiest men in the world, as he got older this wealthy baron, crippled with arthritis could barely walk around his massive estate. So his staff, in an act of great kindness decided to surprise him on his birthday by buying him a mobility scooter…

He was furious and refused to accept their gift, telling them that they had wasted their money. So he sat in his chair, unable to move, unable to enjoy all that he had accomplished, unable to see their kindness towards him.
