However, upon his death, Shafiu's brother, Ubaid (Ibrahim Jihad), strips him of all of his power, throws his family out of the house and fires him from his post at the company. Until Shafiu finds a decent job and settles in, Reena goes to her island with their children while Shafiu has an extramarital affair with a rich woman, Nasheedha (Waleedha Waleed).
