The work focuses on the terrible effects of greed that lead man to degradation and downfall. It is the story of a young architect who is ready to play with the lives of the people who hire his services. With great characterization, the plot and theme are harmoniously blended. The conflict between social and personal values is beautifully captured.

He may have wondered what had brought about this change of heart in his cousin, but later, when the news of the engagement reached him, he understood.
