Ahmed was wounded and lost his arm. He returned with the other maimed and injured soldiers as the men in the Army were complaining about the corrupt people who were importing weapons, including his fiancee's father. While the free officers had resolved to liberate the country and avenge it, at Ahmed's behest Nadia searched her father's papers for incriminating evidence.
