Although he is soon barred from attending school due to his parents’ inability to pay his tuition fees, William blackmails his science teacher (who is in a secret relationship with William’s sister) into letting him continue attending his class and have access to the school’s library where he learns about electrical engineering and energy production.

People soon begin abandoning the village, and William’s sister elopes with his former teacher in order to leave her family “one less mouth to feed”……
