Good to see you Al.

Welcome! Welcome!

I'm so happy you're here.

C'mon right through.

Feel free to go wherever you like

and make yourselves at home

Thanks a lot Al.

Whaddya think, Muriel?

Isn't this beautiful land?

I think the place has a lot of potential.

I can't believe it. It's just perfect,

exactly how you described it.

What a neat place. Is this the one

we're gonna buy, dad?

I sure hope so. Do you like it, Hamal?

I love it this much.

How about you Hasan?

Hmmm, well the soil is rich.

It's located near a nice river...

...but it's gonna be a ton of work huh?

We've got work to do. Move, Cleo.

I said move you stubborn beast!

C'mon, let's go! Don't be such a pain

in the neck! Ehhh, ah, ahhh!

What a strange man!

Do you know him, Mr. Saleh?

Of course I know him,

It's just Enad

Over here, Enad! You should take a break.

Come in! Come in!

Thanks for the invite pal,

but I've got a lot of work to do.

What is your problem mule!? Quiet!

He's one of the neighbours.

By the way, all the neighbours are

great and helpful to each other

But this Enad is definitely

a bit of a character.

Does he live nearby?

He lives next door.

Uh, let's have a look at the house now.

Good idea.

Uhh, the house looks like it needs

a lot of work.

You're right, Hasan. Actually, it hasn't

been lived in for many years.

Uhh oh hee hee hee. Let's go inside now.

Come in.

Oh, I don't know, Amine, look at the walls.

They're in terrible shape.

I know, but we can fix them up quickly.

Well, what did'ya think of the inside?

Uh, it's not bad.

Uh, now we just need to discuss the price.

I thought we already had an agreement.

Isn't that right, Amine?

Uh, yes we did but the house it's,

well, ah, it's...

In need of a lot of repair, right mom?

Oh... yes, but, uh you tell him, Amine.

Is there a problem?

Uh, well, we really can't afford the

price we agreed to.

Not a problem, Amine.

How much can you afford?

About three quarters, and...

And all my jewelry.

No! Keep your jewelry.

Why don't I wait 'till after the harvest.

You're a good man, Al. Thanks a lot.

I'll never forget this.

Hooray! The place is ours!

What a beautiful morning it is today.

Good morning, mommy.

Good morning, sweetheart.


Oh no, what happened to my egg?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, look at the precious.

Oh, no...

Oh no, this just isn't fair.

Somebody come quick. Help!

Look, look at my egg.

What did you have another nightmare about

a chicken crossing the road? Haaah...


La, la, la, la, la, la,

La, la, la, la, la, la.


Hey, hey.

The sun is rising.

It shines for you and me.

It makes us smile... everyone we see.

This poor old house needs a lot of work...

...we better start right away

This old farm had better days.

It's been forgotten.

I'll plant some flower seeds today.

We'll watch them grow up to the sky.

As each passing day and night goes by...

We'll work to fix our home...

...with bricks and wood and stone.

We're happy and we're proud of this

home that we have found.

With our hands we'll do it all.

Fix the roof and build the walls.

Work hard, don't stop,

We'll keep working till we're done.

Let's keep working till we're done.

We won't rest untill we're done.

The pride will show, the pain will go.

Let's build our future on these hopes.

Let's build our future in this home.

Let's pitch in, we're almost finished.

What! Wha...

Oh, now I got him.

Ya little freeloader.

I told ya before to stay out of

the chicken coop.

What a nut job.

Hmm? What's this?

A jar?

Why is it here?

Huh, is it!

Oh, my!

This has to be a dream.

It's gold!

Mom! Dad! Come here!

Look what I found!

Real jewelry and gold, gold,

gold, gold.

Ha, what did he say he's found?

Come, you've got to see this.

Hurry up it's unbelievable.

All our problems are over.


It's our Lucky day!

I think he means my lucky day.

Amine, look, here's a ruby and this

one's an emerald. What a treasure!

Hamal! Hamal! Come and see!

Wow! Can I see one?

I found it inside the wall as I was

knocking it down.

Whaddya think you're doing, Enad?


Shhhhh, keep your voice down.

Listen, look...

...they found an amazing treasure!

I don't care what's going on.

It's none of your business.

Whaddya think they're going to

do if they see you?

Obviously you couldn't have heard me.

They found a huge treasure!

Now they'll have to keep a close

eye on it.

I just can't believe our luck.

Oh Amine, Amine.

Now we can pay off the land,

build a new house and renew our lives.

Living debt free in total happiness

and contentment.

It's the answer to all of our problems...

We'll never have another worry again

as long as we live.

Oh, it's a dream come true.

What a great day this is...

Goodbye to poverty and hunger,

hello new life of wealth and luxury.
