The tragic death of the protagonist Amal at the end of the story touched the heart of the author. This death raised a question in his mind when he was barely a teenager. He asked himself what would have happened had Amal managed to get everything he craved for. Since there was nobody to answer his question, he started searching for the answer on his own and wrote a new drama, Gharer Kheya
