One day, he fell in love with the salesperson Adrianne (Talia Shire decoration) at first sight. Although the girl had an ordinary appearance and an introverted personality, it did not prevent Rocky from loving her passionately.
The love is proud, and the career has also begun to flow smoothly.

When his face was swollen and bleeding, would there be a miracle?
