A Streak of Luck

When your shoes, your car, your career and your family all break apart in one day, you may want to end it all here and now. But could your problems be solved at once with just a glass of beer?
Or perhaps, the life might want to toy with you a little!

Когда в один день у тебя ломаются туфли, машина, карьера и семья, жизнь хочется закончить здесь и сейчас. Но могут ли все твои проблемы решиться за один бокал пива?
Возможно, жизнь ещё захочет поиграть с тобой!
