Me No Money

The story is about a young woman who spots luxury handbags through a shop window while jogging down the street. She daydreams about marrying a wealthy older man who would buy her numerous luxury handbags. As she dances to hip hop and raps, "Me know money, Me no care, Me go marry a millionaire, If he dies, Me no cry, Me go marry another guy." Fueled by these fantasies, she embarks on a quest to find affluent men in the Cyberpunk City and marry them. However, while reveling in her imagined collection and happiness, she realizes that she had been lost in her daydream the entire time.
