Together with his family, he was forced to flee the life he once knew. Now he purs the remainder of his life savings into the purchase of the house that he believes will, at last, bring back their prosperity.

So the conflict for ownership begins. And with neither party able to let go of their great, desperate dream, they are inescapably propelled towards a stunning climax.
