‘Fifty’ By Craig Baumken

Fifty is the story of someone who has experienced misfortune (lost job/career/family) but refuses to succumb to it and remains positive and visible in daily life. One day, he comes across something valuable in the street and instead of using it for himself, he holds onto it until the opportunity comes along where his true character is displayed. And from it, over time, he gains even more in return than the actual value of what he found.
