“You totally ruined my birthday. First you won’t let me have a party and now this? It’s not the right bag at all. Take this back and get me the right one. Get me the Louis Vuitton.”
Kymberdee has gone through a transformation. Her family life has been turned upside down and because of that she has changed from a selfish materialistic hollow human being to someone who puts people ahead of things. She’s changed her name, her friends, her outlook.
But what are the events that have lead to this transformation? And when given an opportunity to return to her materialistic friends, has she changed enough to resist? And why are those foreign exchange students wandering west looking for Meester Staaahr?
Inspired by the short story The Gift of the Magi.
