When it rains, it pours; when it pours, the omnipresent God goes missing; where riches abound, fortune is aplenty; and where misfortune reigns, tragedy thrives! This is what exactly happens to the protagonist, an outcast orphan, who endures agonizing hardships at a very tender age. In what seems like the work of a divine hand, the boy manages to cling on to life. One day, out of the insalubrious street, he finds himself in a palatial dwelling with a kind family; their humanitarian son salvages him; they mollycoddle and re-educate him. Yet, in his adolescence, he tastes a sweet dose of romance and falls into a trap laid by a pretty wench. It breaks his heart asunder! When the femme-fatale elopes with his surrogate-brother, the protagonist feels jilted and betrayed. Sacrificing his true love, the desperado forgoes studies and joins the army. When he is desperately needed, would he truly serve the motherland?
