There lived a man with his two wives, each wife had two daughters and one son. The man was a king. In his family there was no peace at all. Everyday and night his wives crossed each others' path. The King tried his best to settled down the problem but all was in vain. Suddenly the King became very sick to a point of not getting well. Since the son of the first wife was close to his father, he was inherited everything the father owned. After a long while of the king's death the son of the second wife went to his step-brother to ask for his share on their father's wealth. The step-brother told him to go to their fathers grave and ask him for his share since he was given his alone. After a long while of disputes in the family over sharing of property, the son of the second wife plotted to kill his step brother. With good or bad luck the gang he had planned with this was caught and he was one of them. His step-brother went on with life and later on married a girl from the village who knew how his family was terrible. One day after a long time without their notice they were going to meet. she pretended to go and pick her phone from the vehicle and closed the door leaving the two mothers sitted in the house and told them she was not opening the door until the two would forgive each other and become one. So the two mothers thought of it and at end asked for forgiveness and came together as one so that the hole family reconciled and there started peace among them.
