15th December "Un Mundo Maravilloso" by Luis Estrada

Un mundo maravilloso (2006) by Luis Estrada

Érase una vez, que Juan Pérez, el más pobre de los pobres, un día salta a la fama por un accidente en el que parece que se va a suicidar tirándose de lo alto de un edificio para protestar contra el gobierno por su condición social. El Ministro de Economía, acosado por el escándalo en el que lo responsabilizan de la decisión de Pérez, decide cambiarle la vida y le regala una casita, un auto y un trabajo. Pero cuando otros pobres, amigos de Pérez, se enteran de su cambio de fortuna, deciden imitarlo amenazando con tirarse de diferentes edificios de la ciudad. El Ministro, aterrado ante la posible plaga de pedigüeños, decide declarar la pobreza un delito y así acabar de una vez por todas con los pobres del país. Pérez va dar a la cárcel. Tres años después, Pérez sale de prisión y regresa a su antigua condición social, pero esta vez, y sabiendo que es mejor un día como rico que una vida de pobre, hará todo lo posible para salir de la pobreza… Y lo conseguirá.

Once upon a time, Juan Pérez, the poorest of the poor, reaches fame in a fluke accident in what seemed to be an attempt of suicide, to protest against the government and his social condition. The Ministry of Economy, surrounded by the scandal in which he is blamed by Pérez's decision, decides to reward him changing his life giving him a little house, a car and a job. But when other poor people (Pérez's close friends) find out about his reversal of fortune, decide to imitate him faking suicide attempts in different buildings in Mexico City. The Ministry of Economy, terrified by the glance of having a plague of beggars, decides to declare poverty a crime and hence finish for once and for all with all the poor in the country. Pérez ends up behind bars. Three years later, Pérez is released and goes back to his previous social condition, but this time, aware of having one day as a rich man is better than a life as poor...
