A middle aged man lives in a modest house with his faithful wife who does her best to make him happy. He earns a decent income that helps him satisfy his basic needs. They have got a cute little daughter and they live a simple but tranquil life.
Our man is so ambitious that he has tried many times to change his job and looked for additional activities to improve his income and the standards of living of his small family.
He does believe in the golden opportunity that will bring about a leap for the whole family. However, his wife doesn’t seem too ambitious and pushy as he does but she feels more secure and confident.
The man meets a rich widow who makes him an interesting work offer to benefit from his experience and enthusiasm, and of course he can’t decline such an irresistible opportunity he has been waiting for ages.
He welcomes the offer and does his best to show his new employer his considerable assets. He becomes now the trustworthy and dependable person she has been looking for since the death of her husband and she asks his pieces of advice in every initiative. He also helps her to flee her loneliness and awake her emotions. Their relationship develops from business to marriage and he finds himself sunk in business and strives hard to make his second wife enrich her fortune.
The train of affairs and money makes him neglect his first wife and daughter at the point that his presence turns to few weekly visits. Nothing will cross his path to glory and prosperity. He keeps sending them a sum of money as his major form of assuming responsibility. He has surely gone astray and divorces wisdom.
After two years, some unexpected argument takes place with his rich proud wife whose social and economic status is completely higher than his. Trust quickly turns to mistrust and every one reveals his real cards. She simply reminds him of his initial position as an employee at home and at work and the whole game is over.
They eventually get divorced and his train stops at this station. He leaves her home empty handed. He finds himself lost and alone. His heart is filled with disappointment, grief, shame, and regret. He decides to come back to his first home and resume his first way of living with his first wife and daughter and beg their forgiveness. He, indeed, comes back but he finds no one.
