There is a disconnect in the American story.

The bus stops at 133 Street and Liberty Avenue. The lady exits and runs to the roti shop for shelter from the rain. In no time she starts a conversation with one of the shoppers.

She has this friend who has a daughter. The problem is that the daughter was involved in a business wedding. She was supposed to divorce the man in a few weeks. But now he is refusing.

The attorneys on Liberty are refusing this one!
