There, Alpha meets the beautiful and charming CARLITA, and as their relationship blossoms, her cousin brother ROSS. B doesn’t like how fast Alpha is getting closer to Carlita, he tries to sabotage but in vain, Carlita renders him extraneous and irrelevant. The ‘chemistry’ between the two is way above the clouds already. An excited Carlita eventually invites Alpha and the boys to visit at her father’s house in Santa Monica.

Shock looms when Alpha coincidentally finds himself being welcomed into the house by Carlita’s father, MR. ABRAM SMITH himself. Although they try to contain the situation, they still bitterly argue about the past robbery secretly on the side. A predicament soon ensues when suddenly infuriated Mr. Smith’s temper sparks like damp firewood, confrontations begin but despite a physical showdown, the truth does not prevail and Alpha is not suspected.

Alpha survives death by a whisker.

Abram’s wife, MRS. PERRY SMITH threatens turn up and expose everything but the moment is almost saved, rather tragically, when her plane crashes en-route a few hours after takeoff, first rumoured killing all aboard.

After all hope is lost, days later... In black mood, a fatigued Perry suddenly appears at Abrams house in California. Confrontations, a serious quarrel breaks out and she threatens death or a divorce, nothing less.

Months later, Alpha and Carlita’s wedding materializes, they become husband and wife; happily ever after!
