Jacob, a tailor, sends his son to learn English. David excels, discovers he has artistic talent, and dreams of becoming a teacher. His dream is shattered when his father decides David will work instead of “playing” in school, and makes him press clothes. He grows to hate his father for taking his future away from him.

When he reaches eighteen he leaves, realizes he will never become a teacher, and finds himself in business, where he doesn’t belong, and faces failure after failure. He marries Maya, who stands in his way whenever a business opportunity is offered because she won’t leave her mother. David won’t leave his children so he gives up every opportunity to achieve success. His hatred of his father and, eventually, his wife, overwhelm him and he grows to resent his children, whom he sees as “lucky they don’t have a father who wants to destroy their lives the way his father destroyed his.” He ends his life a bitter man who hates his father, his wife, and his life.
