He bases his operations out of their home. When the husband learns of his brother-in-law's treachery, he kills him. His new wife becomes even more bitter after she is placed in a camp for enemy aliens. As the war progresses, the two are unable to contact each other. Following the war she is released and ends up dancing in a sleazy Egyptian cafe. It is here that her husband finds her at last.
