Arrogantly he resolves to regain his former riches and destroy those that turned on him. To prove to himself how brilliant he is, he elects to start his rags to riches journey as a beggar on the very Wall Street where he made his fortune.

As his plan succeeds and he rises from the ashes he discovers how unhappy his former life was and that he's merely creating it all over again.
