    I can’t believed i sent about 26 minutes watching this. Wow! this is one of the most creative short play i have ever seen in a while and it just got to open up my eyes to see the light. This actually means that one can be jobless and still get innovative ways to be self employed. Going to school for the purpose of getting a job is actually not the motive of education. But getting education is actually meant to make you more creative in other for you to get a job. I really appreciate whoever produced this movie, coz i almost ran into tears when i finished it. I can make it if i start from soemwhere

    Wow wow wow, hmmmmnnnn this is a nice short movie that
    teaches lot of things that are needed to be worked on, because as a
    youth of this nation we shouoldn’t be dependant of what our leaders
    could offer us we should agitate and work on how this nation could
    be a place where everyone would live with different innovatoin,
    concept and business mind to prepare for our unborn generatoin. As
    a youth of this nation let’s wake up from our slumber and begin to
    work on God given talent in our lives
