Once upon a boy, Jack, wanted to win a million dollars from the lottery. He prayed every day for that God will help him to win the million.
So as time went by, the boy grew up and got old, but he still didn’t win the million. But he didn’t stop believing in God. In the end, he died and never won the million.
When he arrived in Heaven, he asked God: “God, why I have never won the million in the lottery? I was praying every day and everything I wanted you was to win that stupid million. So, I’m asking you why?”

Inside Out is a story about young Riley. She’s uprooted from her Midwest life and transplanted into San Francisco when her father wants to run his startup in the valley.
As you can expect, Riley’s life is turned upside down with the move.
That’s where the brilliance of Inside Out shines. We are able to put an image to the feelings we’ve all felt as we enter our first day of school, move across the country, or lose a best friend. Read more...
